Is Robert Eggers related to David Eggers?

Robert Eggers and David Eggers have the same last name.

Robert Eggers wrote and directed acclaimed films The Witch and The Lighthouse.

David Eggers wrote the books A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and The Circle.  He also ran McSweeney’s for many years.

Writers, renegades, indie darlings… relatives?

Nope.  Although Robert, at 36, and Dave, at 49, COULD be brothers or cousins, they’re totally not.  Dave is from Boston and Robert is from New Hampshire.

Dave does have three other siblings:  Beth, William, and Christopher.  He wrote about them in his autobiography A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.

Robert has a brother, Max, who works with him on his films and has screenwriting credit on The Lighthouse.

Robert Eggers and Dave Eggers are not related.
