Nick Frost and Lena Headey have been cast as the leads in the new fun-fueled thriller SVALTA, directed by Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil and written by Nick Frost. Wayward Entertainment, Resolute Films, Film Service Finland, XYZ Films and Nick Frost are producing, with XYZ Films handling worldwide sales. The film is scheduled to shoot in Finland next year.
A family on their summer vacation to a remote island with a dark past discovers that a serial killer is on the loose. Unfortunately for them, the hostile locals have no interest in helping this stranded family of tourists.
Frost says: “Take a gentle English family and send them on holiday to a tiny island full of maniacs. Simple. Not so much Nuts in May. More Nuts in Mayhem. After working with Lena in Fighting with My Family I couldn’t imagine anyone else in the world I’d want to play Susan. So I was absolutely thrilled when I heard she’d not only read the script but she actually liked it enough to do me the great honour of saying yes and once again being my on-screen wife.”
