Netflix has announced a new Norwegian sci-fi comedy movie “Blasted,” inspired by the real-life UFO phenomenon in Hessdalen, Norway. The comedy Sci-Fi film will be directed by Martin Sofiedal, written by Emanuel Nordrum, and produced by Are Heidenstrøm (The Wave) at Miso Film.
Blasted follows childhood friends Sebastian (Axel Bøyum) and Mikkel (Fredrik Skogsrud), who are reunited for Sebastian’s bachelor party. While Mikkel never matured past teenage laser tag-prodigy, Sebastian has grown into a career-obsessed workaholic who’s using the party to schmooze a potential client. But when the bachelor party stumbles head-first into an alien invasion, it’s up to Mikkel and Sebastian to reunite as the kick-ass laser tag duo they once were and fight back.
Blasted stars Axel Bøyum and Fredrik Skogsrud in the leading roles as Sebastian and Mikkel. Joining Axel and Fredrik are: Mathias Luppichini (Audun), André Sørum (Kasper), Eirik Hallert (Pelle), Evelyn Rasmussen Osazuwa (Stine) and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hjørdis).
“It is very exciting to be the first Norwegian Sci-Fi comedy in production,” said Are Heidenstrøm, producer and CEO of Miso Film Norway. “Emanuel Nordrum and Martin Sofiedal have created an amazing story where we finally get clarity in the light phenomenon in Hessdalen.”
Claire Willats, Director, International Original Film Nordics, said “Miso Film has been fantastic partners throughout the years and we are looking forward to introducing Blasted to our members worldwide with its bold new concept to come out of the region, sharp humor, and enjoyable action scenes. With such a talented creative team and Martin Sofiedal directing, I’m expecting this film to be a fun and fresh addition to our growing Nordics film slate.”
Blasted will release globally on Netflix in 2022.
