Also, Aaron Pedersen is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor for his portrayal in the film “Mystery Road.” It is a murder mystery set in the Australian Outback. It also stars Hugo Weaving (“The Lord of the Rings,” “Matrix”) and Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”).
I’ve added to our gallery some screen captures of Ryan in The Getaway – Season 1, episode 6: “Ryan Kwanten in Los Angeles”.
COLOGNE, Germany – Northmen: A Viking Saga, one of the many action-driven genre titles that will vie for buyers’ attention at next week’s AFM, has put out the first image from the Claudio Fah-directed feature, which just wrapped principle photography in South Africa.
The story follows a gang of Viking marauders setting out for a raid of the British Isles who are caught up in a storm and shipwrecked on the coast of Scotland. With the help of an enigmatic warrior monk they set off to their way through enemy territory to reach the safety of a Viking stronghold.
The first still of the film shows the bedraggled and bloodstained troop of Vikings on a cliff meant to be on the coast of Scotland. True Blood fans will recognize Ryan Kwanten as the very rough-looking warrior monk, Conall. Knights of Badassdom actor Tom Hopper, who has a starring role in Starz’ upcoming pirate adventure series Black Sails, plays the Viking leader Asbjorn. Irish actress Charlie Murphy (Philomena) and Brits Darrell D’Silva and Leo Gregory also star.
Northmen is co-produced by Swiss production/distribution group Ascot Elite through its Elite Filmproduktion arm together with Germany’s Jumping Horse Film and Two Oceans Production (TOP) in South Africa. Fah’s previous films as a director include the genre titles Sniper: Reloaded and Hollow Man 2. Austrian screenwriters Matthias Bauer and Bastian Zach (One Way Trip) penned the script. Producers are Karin G. Dietrich, Ralph S. Dietrich and Daniel Hoeltschi for Elite; Giselher Venzke and Bertha Spieker for TOP and Marco Del Bianco, Frank Kaminski, Ulrich Stiehm and Rolf Wappenschmitt for Jumping Horse.
The Salt Company is handling worldwide rights and Entertainment One has prebought multiple territories for the feature, including the U.K., France, Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand.
On Wednesday, October 30 at 9pm, Esquire Network’s THE GETAWAY premieres an all-new episode following actor Ryan Kwanten as he explores the City of Angels. Ask Ryan about Los Angeles and he’s likely to say, “Westside is the best side.” Beaches, bikes, sand and seafood. Throw in a classic cheeseburger and custom tequila cocktail, and that’s Ryan’s idea of a perfect weekend getaway.
Come and see what he thinks about Rio. ♥
