Behind the scenes on Black Curse from the producers of Pusher and Hostel
I haven't talked about this film much as it's been in the pipeline for seems like ages but only recently got the go ahead to start filming. Based on a controversial crime novel by Stefán Máni Black Curse revolves around the Icelandic underworld and is based on actual events that took place in the 90's as the author spent time riding along with thugs and generally bad people to get his material. Director Oskar Thor Axelsson makes his feature film debut based on his own script. The film is being produced by Zik Zak the people behind The Good Heart and Noi Albinoi along with production outfit Filmus and executive produced by Nicolas Winding Refn and Hostel's Chris Briggs and is slated to be released late this year or early next year.
A behind the scenes segment was aired on a local TV station a few days ago and while it's mostly interviews with some of the cast and how hard they worked to get in to shape it features some segments of the crew shooting some scenes. Sadly for our international readers it's all in Icelandic and not subtitled.
