Rebecca Ferguson (“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”) is in early talks to co-star with Michael Fassbender in “The Snowman” for Working Title, Another Park Film and Universal Pictures.
The story revolves around detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), a loose cannon in the Oslo police force who investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.
The Harry Hole character has appeared in ten novels by Jo Nesbo, and the aim is for the film to potentially launch a series similar to the way James Patterson’s Alex Cross books yielded multiple films.
Tomas Alfredson (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) will direct the film which was written by Soren Sveistrup. Piodor Gustafsson, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce.
