Netflix has announced Blasted, a comedy sci-fi feature directed by Martin Sofiedal that takes its inspiration from the real-life UFO-phenomenon in Hessdalen, Norway.
Blasted follows childhood friends Sebastian (Axel Bøyum) and Mikkel (Fredrik Skogsrud), who are reunited for Sebastian’s bachelor party. While Mikkel never matured past teenage laser tag-prodigy, Sebastian has grown into a career-obsessed workaholic who’s using the party to schmooze a potential client. But when the bachelor party stumbles head-first into an alien invasion, it’s up to Mikkel and Sebastian to reunite as the kick-ass lasertag duo they once were and fight back.
The cast also includes Mathias Luppichini (Audun), André Sørum (Kasper), Eirik Hallert (Pelle), Evelyn Rasmussen Osazuwa (Stine) and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hjørdis).
Claire Willats, Director, International Original Film Nordics: “Miso Film has been fantastic partners throughout the years and we are looking forward to introducing Blasted to our members worldwide with it’s bold new concept to come out of the region, sharp humour and enjoyable action scenes. With such a talented creative team and Martin Sofiedal directing, I’m expecting this film to be a fun and fresh addition to our growing Nordics film slate.”
Blasted, written by Emanuel Nordrum, will launch globally on Netflix in 2022.
