About the production
First drafts of the Screenplay were written by late Director Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson with Ottó Geir Borg, who took over for the unexpected parting of Árni. With Ottó taking a new post with the Icelandic Film Fund, Gunnar Karlsson took over writing alongside his role as the Director of the Film.
The film will be a co-production with VIVI-Films in Brussels in Belgium and Playmaker of Munich will again handle world-sales. This film has already been “reserved” for most major markets, following the success of Ploey 1.
