Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormakur (“2 Guns,” “Contraband”) is set to take the helm of the Viking action drama “Vikingr” for Universal Pictures and RVK Studios. Kormakur and Olafur Egill Egilsson co-wrote the script.
Set during the early days of Viking life, the film reportedly offers a fresh look at Viking culture and is based on the classic tales from the legendary Icelandic Sagas.
Marc Platt, Adam Siegel, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Nathalie Marciano will produce. Kormakur has reportedly been trying to get the film made for the past fifteen years.
