Anders Baasmo Christiansen joins the cast of OUT STEALING HORSES

The Norwegian actor Anders Baasmo Christiansen has joined the cast of Out Stealing Horses, the upcoming film from Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland.

The film, which currently stars Stellan Skarsgård and Bjørn Floberg, is about 67-year-old Trond, now a widower, who has moved to a forest village that reminds him of the one he visited fifty years ago with his father. Memories of their trips come back, and he is confronted with his life and feelings from 1948.

Anders Baasmo Christiansen is best known for The King’s Choice, Børning and Kon-Tiki.

Out Stealing Horses has a big budget of €4.1 million and is being produced by Zentropa Entertainments, Zentropa Sweden, Helgeland Film AS and Film i Vast. The Norwegian, Danish and Swedish Film Institutes, the pubcasters NRK, DR and SVT, and the pan-Nordic funding body the Nordisk Film and TV Fond have all supported the production.

Shooting is expected to wrap around July, as principal photography is being split into winter and summer shoots.
