This time, SF Studios and Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur will adapt Jo Nesbø’s upcoming book I am Victor, with Kormákur directing.
I am Victor is a thriller about a skilled but morally corrupt narcissistic divorce attorney. When he finds himself framed for a series of brutal murders, he embarks on his own investigation to find the killer.
The outline for I Am Victor was previously adapted by NBC in 2013 with the project going to pilot starring John Stamos, although it barely missed the cut for a series pickup.
The script will be written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, who are understood to be finalising the script before it goes out to cast. Fredrik Wikström Nicastro (Borg/McEnroe, Easy Money trilogy) put the project together and will produce for SF Studios together with Kormakur for RVK Studios. Nesbo and his agent Niclas Salomonsson are executive producers.
