Flukt (Escape) is the new Norwegian action-horror film from Cold Prey director Roar Uthaug and star Ingrid Bolso Berdal. It’s still filming but it looks like you’ll get a chance to see it this year since it’s picking up distribution all over the place at Cannes.
Per Screendaily, “TrustNordisk’s in demand action-adventure Escape has sold to eOne for US and Rialto Distribution for Australia. Market deals were previously struck with Momentum (UK), Koch Media (Germany), Aurum Producciones (Spain), Film Europe (Czech Republic and Slovakia) and Middle East’s Gulf Film with buyers hungry for the film off promo.”
In the film, “Ten years after the Black Death ravaged the country, a poor family is on a journey to find better living conditions. On a deserted mountain pass, they are attacked by a gang of ruthless outlaws. They only spare the life of the nineteen year old Signe. She is taken captive and the gang takes her back to their camp. Here she learns that she is intended a fate worse than death. Signe understands that the only solution is to escape.”
Hallvard Holmen, Tobias Santelman, Martin Slaatto and Hans Jacob Sand also star. Check out the first two stills and sales trailer inside.
