Svensk Set to Produce Babak Najafi’s ‘Horizon’s Line’

Babak Najafi has come on board to direct “Horizon Line,” an English-language suspense thriller penned by Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken, the scribes behind the J.J. Abrams-produced “10 Cloverfield Lane.”

Nordic major Svensk Filmindustri is producing and handling international sales to the movie, which follows a couple on a small airplane that loses its way over the Pacific Ocean.

The film is set to go into production in the fall of 2016 and will soon start casting.

“I am looking forward to working with my friend and producer Fredrik Wikström Nicastro again and making an international movie for Svensk Filmindustri,” said Najafi, who won Berlin’s best first film award for “Sebbe” and previously directed “London Has Fallen ” with Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman.

Campbell and Stuecken’s screenwriting credits include the English-language remake of the 2012 box office hit, “Easy Money” with Joel Kinnaman that was also produced by Svensk Filmindustri.

“The Horizon Line” fits into Svensk Filmindustri´s global strategy to produce English-language thrillers with high-profile Scandinavian talent.

Svensk is currently developing with Studiocanal the English-language remake of “Easy Money” and “Ibiza: The White Island.”

Babak Najafi is repped by UTA and Magnolia Entertainment. Campbell and Stuecken are represented by UTA and Madhouse Entertainment.
