Tyldum Develops "Headhunters" Remake

8 March 2016 6:27 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Imitation Game" director Morten Tyldum is teaming with Yellow Bird to develop an English-language version of their 2011 Norwegian comic thriller "Headhunters".

Based on Jo Nesbo's 2008 novel, the story chronicles the escapades of a high-living corporate headhunter who steals artwork from rich clients to finance his expensive lifestyle. When a heist unexpectedly goes wrong, he ends up in way over his head. Aksel Hennie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau starred in the original film.

Both a feature and TV series remake of the film are being considered with a search currently underway for a writer. Morten Tyldum, Marianne Gray, Berna Levin and Janne Tyldum will produce.

Yellow Bird previously setup a "Headhunters" TV series at HBO and Lionsgate in 2013, a project that did not go past the development stage with the rights now reverting back to Yellow Bird. Neither HBO or Lionsgate are involved any longer.

I was taken on a Seventies musical journey to Donna Summer land, Abba’s Waterloo and the great Starman creator, David Bowie, by Drew Goddard, the screenwriter who adapted Andy Weir's book for Ridley Scott's The Martian, starring Matt Damon with Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Benedict Wong, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan, and Aksel Hennie. Daniels (Nasa director Teddy Sanders) who plays Apple CEO John Sculley in Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs - starring Michael Fassbender with Kate Winslet, and written by Aaron Sorkin - is a favorite of Goddard’s since Woody Allen's The Purple Rose Of Cairo and James L. Brooks' Terms Of Endearment.

Matt Damon, BAFTA nominee and Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy or Musical winner The Martian, which is based on Andy Weir's book, spoke with me about civilisation, shaving on Mars, Tom Hanks in Robert Zemeckis's Cast Away and Robert Redford in Jc Chandor's All Is Lost. We were at the Twentieth Century Fox 21 Club tea with Ridley Scott, star Jessica Chastain and screenwriter Drew Goddard, who told me he put David Bowie's haunting Starman into the script. The ensemble cast includes Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Benedict Wong, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie with Matt Damon as astronaut/botanist Mark Watney and Jessica Chastain as Melissa Lewis, the Commander in charge of Nasa's mission to Mars.
