Jo Nesbø's Headhunters new trailer

Headhunters.jpgFingers crossed I'm off to see this on Sunday at the Glasgow Film Festival, and although I'm not sure how the film is going to turn out at all, I am rather excited to see it after the rather cool trailer that I've just seen.

Jo Nesbø's novels have been doing really well, I can attest as my wife has a number sitting on her book shelves and has read a fair few, and so it's no surprise to see films picking up on them, perhaps the surprise is that they've not come out sooner.

Headhunters is the adaptation of the Jo Nesbø film by the same name, a thriller that promises to make a strong transfer to film and has already done so in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Russia, Estonia, arrives tomorrow at the Glasgow Film Festival, and release across other European countries in the following months.

I don't think it'll be long before it reaches America, although it'll probably have to be remade in order to get a wide release.

Here's the blurb for Headhunters:

The charismatic Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie), a successful corporate headhunter by day and prolific art thief by night, is lured into a dangerous game of cat and mouse when he goes after the biggest heist of his life.

The film stars Aksel Hennie, Synnøve Macody Lund, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Julie R. Ølgaard, was adapted by Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg and directed by Morten Tyldum.

Now, here's the trailer which comes through TrailerAddict. It's rather a good trailer, and I'll report back from the GFF screening on Sunday, if I can get tickets.
