US-based Epic Pictures Group has announced today that they have partnered up with Norwegian-based Yesbox Productions to finance and produce an English-language sequel to the internationally successful Thale (read our review), the mythological suspense thriller which was written and directed by Aleksander Nordaas. The sequel will again be written and directed by Nordaas, with Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson of Epic Pictures Group producing alongside Bendik Heggen Strønstad of Yesbox Productions. The original film played at both Toronto and SXSW last year and became a worldwide hit, having been released in almost 50 countries.
In the original Norwegian film, “two crime-scene cleaners discover a mythical, tailed female creature in a concealed cellar. She never utters a word, unable to tell her story, but the pieces of the puzzle soon come together: she’s been held captive for decades for reasons soon to surface. Thale is based on a mythical character in Nordic folklore called the “huldra”. According to the myth, a huldra is a beautiful creature with female attributes living deep in the woods. It is said that it seduces men that works in the woods by humming a beautiful song, and they never return to their village. You can recognize a huldra by its cow tail.“
