Follow the production hereTHE WAVE is an epic Scandinavian disaster movie based on true events. The film will be directed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (COLD PREY, 2006 and ESCAPE, 2012) and produced by Norwegian company FanteFilm Fiksjon who in current years has established themselves as the production company of large scale Scandinavian genre films.
80 years ago, a number of villages in Norway were hit by a huge tsunami when a mountain side collapsed and caused damage and casualties in the fjords. Geologists say that it is just a matter of time, when it will happen again.
Starring Kristoffer Joner (KING OF DEVIL’S ISLAND, 2010 and ALL THAT MATTERS IS PAST, 2012) and Ane Dahl Torp (PIONEER, 2012 and 1001 GRAMS, 2014) among others, THE WAVE takes its starting point just prior to the incident in our time and focuses on an experienced geologist whose worst nightmare is about to come true when the alarm goes off and the disaster is inevitable. With less than 10 minutes to react, it becomes a race against time in order to save as many as possible.
THE WAVE is produced by Martin Sundland and Are Heidenstrøm for Fantefilm Fiksjon in co-production with Fuzz, Filmkraft Invest, Storyline Studios, Film Väst and Gimpville with support from The Norwegian Film Institute and Nordic Film & TV Fund.
Nordic distribution through Nordisk Film Distribution with release currently set for Autumn 2015.
