Ben Kinsgley, Benno Furmann and Tuva Novotny will star in DEATH OF AN AUTHOR, the first of a planned trilogy based on Swedish writer Hakan Nesser’s “Intrigue” thriller novels.

Daniel Alfredson will direct, with The Amazing Film Company co-producing and financing all three films with Enderby and Umedia, with Silver Reel also on board to co-finance.

The follow-up films “Samaria” and “Dear Agnes” will follow up immediately, with all three eyed to be completed by August. A 2018 release is being eyed.

The books have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide in 30 languages, and are set in an undefined country somewhere in Northern Europe and deal with the problems of escape, with dark hidden secrets destined to surface–and with the concepts of guilt, revenge and atonement.

Enderby’s Rick Dugdale is producing with Thomas Peter Friedl and Uwe Schott from The Amazing Film Company. Ian Hutchinson from Silver Reel executive produces.

Production is set to begin this week in Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia and Belgium.
