Roar Uthaug Directs Netflix Original Troll

Netflix has announced its latest original feature, Troll, a Norwegian language action adventure to be directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave).

Deep inside the mountain of Dovre, something gigantic awakens after being trapped for a thousand years. Destroying everything in its path, the creature is fast approaching the capital of Norway. But how do you stop something you thought only existed in Norwegian folklore? 

Roar Uthaug said: “Troll is an idea that has been developing in the back of my mind for over 20 years. To finally be able to realise it with the enthusiastic and ambitious people at Netflix is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to unleash this Norwegian monster on the world.”

Netflix Vice President of International Original Film, David Kosse, added: “We are incredibly proud to bring a Norwegian project of this scale to the world together with Roar Uthaug. Roar is an extremely skilled filmmaker and I’m excited for him to go back to his Norwegian roots with this ambitious and fun film.”

Troll will be released exclusively on Netflix in 2022.
