Rising star Inez Dahl Torhaug (The Truth Will Out) is set to make her big screen debut with the leading role sci-fi adventure UFO Sweden, the second feature by Swedish film collective Crazy Pictures (The Unthinkable).
Described by Crazy Pictures as the love child between The X-Files and Stranger Things, UFO Sweden tells the story of a teenage rebel (Inez Dahl Torhaug) placed in foster care who suspects that her father is not dead but has been kidnapped by UFOs. With the help from a UFO association, she is determined to find out the truth.
Inez Dahl Torhaug said: “When I read the script, I was hooked, this is really such a big and unique project. It is also very exciting to have the opportunity to play such a strong and cool character as Denise and to be able to do all this together with Crazy Pictures. This means I will always leave the set with a smile on my face.”
Producer, Olle Tholén, added: “Denise is a character who carries most of the film, so it was extremely important to find the right person portraying her. We were extremely relieved when we saw the tape that Inez sent in, it was her, it was so obvious. We were mesmerized by her presence and knew immediately that she was exactly what we were looking for.”
The cast also includes Guldbagge Award winner Eva Melander (Border), Jesper Barkselius (The Unthinkable) and Sara Shirpey (Top Dog).
UFO Sweden has already begun filming in Norrköping and is slated for a Swedish theatrical release at Christmas 2022.
