Review Ethan / 2022-08-29 06:45:58

Previously, Netflix paired up Tomb Raider director Roar Ulaug with actress Alicia Vikander to make the Norwegian film, Troll. Sadly, Alicia Vikander has since left the project, however, that doesn’t mean Troll isn’t going to be an incredibly exciting addition to the Netflix library sometime in 2022. Here’s everything we know so far about Troll.

Director Roar Uthaug said that the concept for Troll was in his head for 20 years. That said, although, the idea for Troll is Uthaug’s, the script for the movie is written by Espen Aukan, who has worked on such projects as Vikingulven, The Games, and Wettlaufer’s Widow.

“Troll is an idea that has been developing in the back of my mind for over 20 years. To finally be able to realize it with the enthusiastic and ambitious people at Netflix and Motion Blur is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to unleash this Norwegian monster on the world.”

“We are incredibly proud to bring a Norwegian project of this scale to the world together with Roar Uthaug and Motion Blur. Roar is an extremely skilled filmmaker and I’m excited for him to go back to his Norwegian roots with this ambitious, fun film.”
