Q&A: Ronnie Sandahl, ‘Underdog’ Director, on Shifting Sweden/Norway Relationship

1 February 2015 4:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A novelist, journalist and filmmaker who turned 30 only last year, Swedish director Ronnie Sandahl makes the jump from short films with his feature directorial debut, “Underdog.” The film follows 23-year-old Dino (Bianca Kronlof) in the wake of the 2009 financial crisis, as she’s forced to leave her native Sweden to try and find work of any kind in Norway. It’s a story that’s becoming increasingly common in Sandahl’s home country, and he talked to Variety about how the shifting relationship between the two neighboring nations inspired his first full-length film.

Variety: What was the inspiration for the film’s narrative?

Sweden has always been the self-righteous big brother of Scandinavia, and Norway the poor little brother. But during the last 20 years, after Norway finding oil and Sweden suffering one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in Europe, the power balance has completely shifted. Now the Norwegians »

Watch the Trailer for Tom Hardy's Cold War Thriller 'Child 44' (Video)

28 January 2015 5:38 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Tom Hardy has never met a funny accent that he hasn't fallen wildly in love with. His latest is a gruff Russian number for "Child 44," a new film based on Tom Rob Smith's best-selling historical thriller that follows a former secret policeman (Hardy) who is investigating a series of grisly child murders in Soviet Russia. And you can hear that accent and see Hardy in action in the gripping new trailer.

"Child 44" is based, in part, on a real life serial killer dubbed the Red Ripper who murdered more than 50 women and children in Stalin's supposedly perfect Russia. Hardy plays a man who is clued into the killer after a friend's child is murdered. This looks really intense. The all-star supporting cast includes Gary Oldman (Batman reunion!), Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel (glimpsed briefly in the trailer), Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, Noomi Rapace (re-teaming with Hardy after "The Drop") and Dev Patel. »

Lionsgate

The big screen adaptation of Child 44 is described as a politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia. The movie chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor.

Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”

It’s an interesting sounding premise, and one many people will be familiar with due to the fact that movie is based on the 2008 novel of the same name. That was written by Tom Rob Smith, and was the first »

Tom Hardy Looks For ‘Child 44′ In New Trailer

27 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tom Hardy rejoins forces with Gary Oldman for their fourth collaboration after The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Lawless, in murder mystery Child 44. The film sees a hunt for a prolific serial killer in Soviet Russia, where many claim murder just doesn’t happen. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, who graduated to Hollywood with his 2010 hit Safe House, the film looks incredibly tense, with the cold landscape adding to the atmosphere of the film.

We love a bit of Gary Oldman, especially when putting on an accent, and the duo of Oldman and Hardy hasn’t let us down before. Joining them are the likes of Charles Dance, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel, as well as Oldman’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes co-star Jason Clarke. It’s quite the international cast and we can’t wait to see Tom Rob Smith’s novel hit the big screen. »
