Dan Mazer, Sacha Baron Cohen’s frequent collaborator, is set to co-write, direct and exec produce “Three Miles North Of Molkom” for Studiocanal.
The project, which was first reported in Deadline, is being produced by Graham Broadbent and Czernin’s Blueprint Pictures.
Co-written by Jamie Minoprio and Jonathan Stern, the comedy project is inspired by Robert Cannan and Corinna McFarlane’s “Three Miles North of Molkom,” a doc about Ängsbacka, a 21st Century playground for adults that’s hidden in the lakeside forests of Sweden.
The playground opens its gates once a year for a New Age festival where a thousand international participants experience tantric sex, shamanism and fire-walking.
The project is believed to follow a jock character who gets separated from his backpacking friends and accidentally winds up at the festival, according to Deadline.
StudioCanal will finance, handle international sales and distribute in its territories.
