Röde Orm – The Long Ships

At last are they are going to make a Swedish produced film on one of my favorite books: Röde Orm – The Long Ships written by the swedish authour Frans G. Bengtsson.

The news was released yesterday at the Cannes Filmfestival. There will be 2 films and a tv-serie out of the about $30 million dollar budget and they plan to start filming in 2013 for release in 2014 and 2015...can´t wait:)

You can read a review of the book at Paris Reviews


  1. Sounds interesting.... is this the book that Hollywood used when they did that film called The Longships with Kirk Douglas?

    If so, I think that the Swedes will do it much more justice :O)


  2. Hi Darrell

    Yes it´s that book... But I realy hope that this film will be much better... :)

    best regards Dalauppror

  3. I reckon so! It could not be worse!! :O))

    Seriously though, I think the Swedes will do a much better job than Hollywood could ever manage.
