‘Let the Right One In’ Director Boards Jo Nesbo’s ‘The Snowman’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Working Title production is exec produced by Martin Scorsese

“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” helmer Tomas Alfredson will direct an adaptation of the Jo Nesbo crime novel “The Snowman” for Working Title Films and Universal.

Alfredson will be working on a draft of the screenplay with writer Soren Sveistrup. The film will be produced by Working Title Films in association with Alfredson’s Another Park Film.

Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce along with Piodor Gustafsson.

The film revolves around Harry Hole, a detective who has been featured in ten Nesbo novels. Described as a loose cannon in the Oslo police force, the story has Hole investigating the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.

When Working Title originally optioned the book, the idea was to make create a series similar to the Alex Cross films that have starred Morgan Freeman and most recently Tyler Perry.

Martin Scorsese, who at one point was circling the project, is executive producing alongside Nesbo and Niclas Salomonsson, who also represents Nesbo. Working Title’s Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger will also executive produce.

Alfredson broke out with his cult vampire hit “Let the Right One In” and followed that up with critically-acclaimed spy drama “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” which received a handful of Oscar nominations including one for Gary Oldman in the best actor category.

He is repped by ICM Partners.
