Baltasar Kormákur is one of the national treasures of Iceland’s film industry, as a writer, director, producer and actor. His Icelandic films, like 101 Reykjavik and The Deep, often screen at the Toronto International Film Festivals (with the former winning the festival’s Discovery Award in 2000). Kormákur is also a noted actor in his country and appeared in the hit movie Reyjavik-Rotterdam. A few years after starring in that film, Kormákur would direct its American remake, Contraband, starring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale.
Today, Kormákur moves between big-budget American films and Icelandic projects. He is currently preparing to make Everest, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, Josh Brolin and Jason Clarke, based on the true story about a 1996 disaster on the mountain that killed eight climbers. Until then, Kormákur is celebrating the DVD and Blu-Ray release of his buddy comedy/thriller 2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
