Jo Nesbo's The Snowman Starring Michael Fassbender Sets Its Debute Date
It seems that the endless talks about putting Jo Nesbo's The Snowman on big screens are finally going to materialize. Directed by the famous Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) the movie is going to be a hit of 2017, its UK debut set for the 13th October.
The non-conventional Norwegian detective Harry Hole will be played by Michael Fassbender. “It’s got that Scandi-noir element to it, for sure. I think it’s going to be very rich. I love working with Tomas Alfredson. He’s an absolutely great filmmaker. And I think it’s going to be scary, and I think it’s going to be edge-of-the-seat stuff. I like it because Harry Hole’s a very flawed genius in his department of work. He’s an excellent detective. But he kind of goes off the rails. He’s very human,” Fassbender tells Digital Spy. “Let’s say, if there was a fight sequence with somebody. He’s not Jack Reacher. He comes off the worse for wear a lot of the times in these encounters. And I like that. There’s something kind of funny about that. I find that there’s really comical elements there.”
The movie also stars Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Gainsbourg. It begins with the scene where Harry Hole finds a pink scarf on a snowman and starts looking for a missing woman.
Though there's no trailer yet to watch, The Film Stage has released a bunch of photos for the fans awaiting.
