Norwegian director is currently working on an adventure film titled Benjamin Falck og dødsdolken, which has been described as a ‘Norwegian Indiana Jones-like film’, Side2 reports. The film follows treasure hunter Benjamin on a quest for treasure in Mallacora in the Mediterranean.

The crew have just wrapped up a shoot on the Spanish island, and are now back in Norway and talking to Side2 about all the trials and tribulations of shooting an adventure film (which you can read here). The film was listed as a crowdfunding project, but only managed to get half the money it was asking. Due to a lack of budget the crew had to turn to volunteer work.

The Norwegian adventure film is due for release next fall and the team are still looking for funding to get the project finished.
