Screendaily exclusive: Buyers venture to TrustNordisk's VALHALLA

By Wendy Mitchell / Screendaily



TrustNordisk has closed a number of deals on Fenar Ahmad´s Viking-era adventure Valhalla including with Germany and German-speaking Europe (Koch), Czech Republic and Slovakia (Foxx New Media), Hungary (ADS), Middle East (Phars), Korea (PoogKyung/Scene & Sound), and Lithuania (Danish Cultural Institute).

Inspired by Norse mythology, the live-action story sees children accompany the gods Thor and Loki on a journey to Valhalla to prevent Ragnarok, the end of the world.

The $5.4m (€4.6m) film is currently in post-production for delivery later this year, after shooting in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland.

Valhalla is a Denmark-Iceland co-production, with Denmark´s Profile Pictures and Nordisk partnering with Icelandic co-producer Netop Films. It also shot in Sweden with backing from Film i Skane, and Norway with partner Bacon/Bulldozer.
