Baltasar Kormákur To Direct Jo Nesbø’s I Am Victor

SF Studios has announced that Baltasar Kormákur (Trapped) is to direct I Am Victor, an English language feature based on Jo Nesbø’s forthcoming novel, which will be adapted by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall).

I Am Victor follows a skilled but morally corrupt and narcissistic divorce settlement lawyer who finds himself framed for a series of brutal murders thus starting his own investigation to find the killer.

Producer, Fredrik Wikström Nicastro, told “Baltasar was my first choice so I got in touch directly with him and Agnes [Johansen] at RVK studios and after talking it through we decided that we wanted to develop it together.”

“When Purvis & Wade wanted to come on-board it wasn´t much of a discussion… their James Bond tone is a great match with Nesbø´s and their writing is just top-notch.”
