Stockholm: Helmer Saleh Sets Thriller ‘Nile’ With Fares Fares

11 November 2015 1:39 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Swedish writer-director Tarik Saleh will direct the Egypt-set thriller “The Nile Hilton Incident,” based on the murder of a Lebanese pop singer in 2008. The lead role is written for Saleh’s friend Fares Fares (”Zero Dark Thirty”).

French D.P. Pierre Aim (Stockholm festival screener “Macadam Stories”) is on board to shoot, confirmed Swedish producer Kristina Aberg at Stockholm-based production company Atmo.

Aberg has also produced Saleh’s previous films, including “Metropia” and last year’s thriller “Tommy,” starring by Moa Gammel, Ola Rapace and pop singer Lykke Li.

World sales will be handled by Match Factory and the film will start its shoot at the end of November with a budget of $4.25 million. The film is a co-production between Sweden, Denmark (Final Cut For Real) and Germany (Ostlicht), backed by, among others, Eurimages, Film Vast and a Swedish Film Institute top grant of $1.26 million.
