Nick Frost and Lena Headey are tackling a new comedic serial killer thriller.
The film, Svalta, will follow “a family on their summer vacation to a remote island with a dark past. There, they discover that a serial killer is on the loose and that unfortunately for them, the hostile locals have no interest in helping them.”
Frost will also be writing the film, with Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil directing. Produced by XYZ Films, it is scheduled to shoot in Finland next year.
Frost said in a statement, “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.”
