Based on an original story by best-selling author Jo Nesbø, JACKPOT is an action-comedy with a memento to Tarantino´s absurd action universe. Producers are Are Heidenstrøm and Martin Sundland from Fantefilm Fiksjon, who produced the horror-thrillers COLD PREY I-III and who are currently in postproduction with epic action-adventure ESCAPE. Director is Magnus Martens.
Metrodome´s Head of Distribution Jezz Vernon about the acquisition: “ We're very pleased to be working TrustNordisk again on Jo Nesbø's JACKPOT, it's a cracking piece of genre action that turns the Scandinavian crime thriller on its head.”
