Despite developing and reading numerous scripts he had not found his next project. One screenplay he did not anticipate connecting with was a thriller set in Northern Ireland during the early years of the Troubles. However, after reading the script, he was gripped by the story of ’71, it struck a chord and the main character resonated with Demange.

Universal Pictures send word that they’ve acquired ‘Vikingr,’ an action drama to be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (The Deep, 2 Guns). Kormakur wrote the story and the script, along with Olafur Egill Egilsson. ‘Vikingr’ is based on the classic tales deriving from the legendary Icelandic Sagas, which document larger than life heroes, adventures and battles of early Nordic settlers, as well as daily life in the Viking age. The film will focus on Viking culture as a whole on a scale that is “both intimate and epic.”
Next up for Baltasar Kormakur is ‘Everest,’ which opens on September 18th, 2015. Starring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, John Hawkes, Sam Worthington, Naoko Mori, Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson, Thomas M. Wright, and Clive Standen, the film is inspired by the events surrounding a treacherous attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain. ‘Everest’ documents the journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.
