Heaven and Hell Trilogy Gets Adapted

Spellbound Productions and Cap Horn Film are teaming for film adaptations of Icelandic author Jon Kalman Stefansson’s critically acclaimed “Heaven and Hell” novel trilogy.

The three books – “Heaven and Hell,” “The Sorrow of Angels” and “The Heart of Man” – all follow the struggles of an Icelandic man living in a small fishing village at the turn of the 19th century.

Fridrik Thor Fridriksson (“Children of Nature”) will direct and adapt the novels with “Let the Right One In” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” producer Gunner Carlsson.

Shooting kicks off next year with the first film to debut in late 2014.
