After his long-awaited debut Call Girl, which won a prize at Toronto this year, Swedish helmer Mikael Marcimain is speeding up his career. Variety reports that Marcimain will adapt Swedish suspense bestseller Stallo by Stefan Spjut.
“Stallo,” which has been compared with “Let the Right One In,” depicts a grey everyday Sweden with supernatural elements. Instead of vampires, fellow countryman Marcimain will have to deal with “stallos,” human-like creatures who like to eat people.
The sophomore novel already sold to 15 countries before its local release last week from Albert Bonniers, Sweden’s biggest publishing house.
Pic’s producer is Anna Croneman at Stockholm-based production company Bob Film. Croneman told local newspapers the adaptation would be an international production, set to shoot in 2014-15.
