Though we've been talking about Norwegian star Aksel Hennie for years here at ScreenAnarchy, for many his first real exposure came through international hit Headhunters
. So how do we greet the news that Hennie has reunited with the producers of that film along with the director of the original Insomnia
- later remade by Christopher Nolan - for the upcoming thriller Pioneer
? With a great deal of excitement, of course.
PIONEER is set in the early 80's, at the beginning of the Norwegian Oil
Boom. Enormous oil and gas deposits are discovered in the North Sea and
the authorities aim to bring the oil ashore through a pipeline from
depths of 500 meters. A professional diver, Petter, obsessed with
reaching the bottom of the Norwegian Sea has the discipline, strength
and courage to take on the world's most dangerous mission. But a sudden,
tragic accident changes everything. Petter is sent on a perilous
journey where he loses sight of who's pulling the strings. Gradually he
realizes that he is in way over his head and that his life is at stake.
Wes Bentley and Stephen Lang also star in this international affair and if you need further convincing just take a look at the first teaser below. No subtitles but none are needed as there's no dialogue, either. Just a lot of absolutely gripping imagery.
