The Icelandic Film Centre has awarded Tenderlee MPC Phase 1 script grants for Gudmundur Óskarsson’s Take 2 and Ottar Nordfjörd’s Una. Both are set to be helmed by Marteinn Thorsson. The former is a romantic comedy about a burnt-out football (soccer) star who returns to his roots in a small town in Iceland only to discover that his old flame, the local beauty queen, has also moved back. The latter is a suspense/horror tale of a young woman who insists her allegedly dead son is very much alive.
The deal was signed on behalf of Samfilm’s Thorvaldur Árnason and Ragnheidur Erlingsdottir for Tenderlee Motion Pictures Company and Olafur Darri Olafsson for Stor og sma.
Producers for Tenderlee MPC are Marteinn Thorsson, Gudmundur Oskarsson and Ragnheidur Erlingsdottir and Olafur Darri Olafsson for Stor og sma.
