Using similar themes to Rams, The County will be set in rural Iceland and follow Inga, a middle-aged cow farmer who loses her husband in a car accident and must stand on her own two feet.
Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir will star as Inga, with the cast also including Hinrik Ólafsson, Sigurður Sigurjónsson, Hannes Óli Ágústsson, Ragnhildur Gísladóttir, Sveinn Ólafur Gunnarsson, and Jens Albinus.
The County starts shooting next month, and the release date will be in early 2019 (perhaps for the Gothenburg Film Festival?).
The County is produced by Grimar Jonsson for Netop Films alongside Profile Pictures of Denmark, Haut et Court of France and One Two of Germany.
