Boom! PR client Buccaneer Media, producer of hit drama ‘Marcella’ today announces it has signed an agreement with internationally-renowned TV and film director Baltasar Kormákur and his production company RVK Studios (‘Trapped’, ‘Everest’) to create an English language dramatisation of one of Iceland’s most mysterious murder investigations.
John Brownlow, whose credits include ‘The Miniaturist’ for BBC One, ‘Fleming’ for Sky Atlantic and feature film ‘Sylvia’ is attached as writer for ‘The Reykjavik Confessions’.
‘The Reykjavik Confessions’ is based on the controversial 1974 case where two men vanished in the barren outskirts of Iceland’s capital Reykjavik, ten months apart. Their disappearances triggered a national double murder investigation, their bodies never found.
