‘Millenium’ Series Director Daniel Alfredson Boards Swedish Trilogy ‘Intrigo’

Enderby Entertainment, aiming to replicate Sweden’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” trilogy, has signed Daniel Alfredson direct three movies based on Hakan Nesser’s upcoming “Intrigo” trilogy of novels.

Enderby will co-produce and finance the three films along with Germany’s The Amazing Film Company and Umedia. Alfredson will direct the “Intrigo” films from scripts he’s co-writing with Ditta Bongenhelm.

Alfredson directed Noomi Rapace in the second and third films in the “Millenium Series” trilogy — “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” in 2009. Sony released a remake of the first film “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” starring Rooney Mara, in 2011.

The films will be produced by Enderby’s Rick Dugdale and Thomas Peter Friedl and Uwe Schott from The Amazing Film Company. Daniel Petrie, Jr. is executive producing.

Production is currently set for early next year in Europe. UTA Independent Film Group is repping Northern American rights.

Nesser’s books have sold over 20 million copies worldwide and are translated into more than 24 languages. The “Intrigo” trilogy will be published worldwide in 2017.

The books, titled “Death of an Author,” “Dear Agnes” and “Samaria” are set in an undefined country somewhere in northern Europe. The three films deal with the problems of escape, dark hidden secrets destined to surface, guilt, revenge and atonement. The films will all be in English language with additional British and American casting announcements to come.

“I was immediately captured by Hakan Nesser’s work, who is a hugely successful Swedish novelist and with Daniel onboard to direct this could easily become the next ‘Millennium Series,'” Dugdale said. “I look forward to turning these books into a thrilling adventure for all audiences.”

Enderby collaborated with Alfredson on “Blackway,” starring Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta and Julia Stiles. It’s in post-production on the political thriller “An Ordinary Man,” starring Ben Kingsley and directed by Brad Silberling.

Nesser has written mostly crime novels set in Northern Europe, often with police inspector named Van Veeteren.
