The Swedish Film Institute certainly knows how to make up for missed opportunities.
After refusing to back helmer Johan Kling’s first pic, “Darling,” which went on to become a local hit and fest fave, the film body apologized.
Now, it’s ponied up $1.1 million of the $3 million budget for Kling’s next pic, “Trust Me.”
Pic starts shooting Oct. 9 and is a dark comedy set at a rundown amateur theater in Stockholm. It stars brothers Alexander and Gustaf Skarsgard … as well as “Darling” actors Michelle Meadows and Michael Segerstrom.
