CREATOR OF NEW SWEDISH GENRE CINEMA MAKES VIKING PICTURE

By Carola Knubben and Liv Gorissen at Conmose

Swedish film maker Jonas Wolcher is back in the producers chair again but this time with a much bigger production.




I'm planning a studio picture Nikita Ivanenko's viking saga “The Dead Man's Mound” directed by the award winning Chandradeep Das, which is in the pre-production. An authentic historical movie with a great crew and with actors from all over the world. Everything you see in the movie is for real. It's made by craftsmen from actual findings in Scandinavia. It's a pretty big production with a lot of crew. We want to shoot the movie in late 2019 on locations in Sweden and in Iceland. At the moment we are looking for more investors.

The script is co-written by Victoria Tarazi who's been working a lot with Michael Bay in the 90s. Among of the actors are Yan BirchMatthias HuesHarley WallenIda Karolin JohanssonKim Sønderholm, Peter Sjöquist and Jason Trost. The music will be composed by Thomas Rydell and the award winning Marco Werba together with the All-Star rock band Bleckhorn

For makeup is the infamous sfx Mark Maitre and his crew. The second unit is run by Paul Weston and stunt coordinator Lars Lundgren. Both are well known in the stunt world in Hollywood.

During the design production by Mattias Johansson of Dead Man's Mound, He has have striven to use craftsmen of the absolute top tier of their respective fields. The producer employs people within several different disciplines, like blacksmiths, wood carvers, cobblers, tailors and bowyers, to name a few.





The goal is to use as much materials and colours typical for the period as possible, in fabrics, wood and leather. The ambition is to create a viking age film based closely around finds and knowledge about the epoch. This includes everything visible in front of the camera, including chain mail, helmets, weapons, chests, buildings, ships and clothing.














Additionally, the things toe create for Dead Man's Mound are produced as locally as possible, making as small a environmental footprint as possible. When it comes to the people behind the camera, however, the producer has more inclusive, and have a wide ethnic variety and a balance between the gender.

Claudio Dragonetti is an Italian assassin, one of the best in the industry. He is hired by a local mafia boss in Gothenburg, Ivan. He needs Dragonettis services to get rid of the two competitors. The job is nothing special really. This is something that Claudio Dragonetti done many times before. But this time something goes wrong and he accidentally kills the wrong people. This is appreciated neither by the Mafia or the Swedish authorities and Dragonetti soon finds that he is driven from two directions. But Claudio Dragonetti has a trump card which none o…

The success of the Swedish monster movie made in Värmland continues

Have you heard about Hermit: Monster Killer?

This has become one of the strangest scifi comedies ever produced.
Director Ola Paulakoski (Vietnam 1969 ,Werewolf Chronicles) has created a fantastic story about an old grumpy guy and his dog living in a middle of nowhere fighting a space creature who has crash landed nearby his house. Hermit has been screened on several festivals and last year it got the title Arthouse in Mumbai.
A collaboration with TeebTV and Vidio were made and HeIrmit was screened for the first time on both channels in April 2017. If you haven't watched the movie yet it's still a chance. We are going to screen it for free on TeebTV for another period.



The Predator was awesome and cut.

I remembered when I saw The Predator on VHS for the first time. I'm been having my eyes on the brochure from the renting company for nearly a month. And then finally I got the VHS rental. We put it in the machine and watched it. It was like magic but there were something missing. Like 5 min or pure violence and mayhem. The Swedish Censorship had slashed a perfect movie.
I had to wait until it came on DVD when I saw the original version. And from that day I was in heaven. The Predator has to be one of the cheesiest and coolest manbro movie ever.
Watch it on Bluray/DVD/downloader or Streamer. It doesn't matter. It's still a wonderful action thriller scifi drama with one of the hardest lines ever in film history.
