Some of you may recall Andre Ovredal's 2011 film, which found a group of students investigating a mysterious series of animal killings in the deep Norwegian woods. They discover that some distinctly fantastical creatures are responsible, and that their only hope for survival is a grizzled loner whose life revolves around tracking and killing the trolls.
Marshall will be reworking the screenplay, originally crafted by Marc Haimes, and the producers are apparently keen to find a leading man who doesn't normally dabble in horror thrillers. Neil's name in the genre should certainly help with their search. With a reported $25 million to play with, filming is set to start early next year.
