TrustNordisk has boarded sales on Gustav Moller’s debut feature The Guilty, which is currently in post-production, reports ScreenDaily.
The Guilty is a thriller about a former police officer who answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. With just his phone he has to race against time to save her. The film takes place in real time – instead of action set pieces, the camera stays with the protagonist letting the audience experience events as he does.
“It’s a one-location film but hopefully it won’t feel that way…The idea would be that the strongest images in the film would be in the audience’s mind,” Moller said in Goteborg.
Jakob Cedergren (Terribly Happy, Submarino) plays the lead.
Lina Flint produces the film through Nordisk Film SPRING, a new initiative to support upcoming talents. The Danish Film Institute’s New Danish Screen also backs the project.
SPRING was started by Flint (whose credits include The Elite) and screenwriter Emil Nygaard Albertsen in collaboration with Nordisk. Described as an “experimental creative collective,” it supports new talents and new ways of working.
