CONFIRMED: Summit To Remake Norwegian Thriller HEADHUNTERS
It was all the way back in July that ScreenAnarchy reported Summit Entertainment was teaming with Sweden's Yellow Bird Films to produce a US adaptation of Jo Nesbo's Headhunters. It's taken a while for word to spread but Deadline and Screen Daily have both now picked up on the story and are confirming all points.

Summit's goal here is not to engage in a direct remake of the existing Norwegian film but to create a fresh adaptation from the ground up, presumably with the goal of continuing to adapt more of Nesbo's novels in the future should this one prove to be a success. Take a look at the trailer for the Norwegian version below.

Roger is a man who seems to have it all: he is Norway's most successful Headhunter, married to the beautiful gallery-owner Diana, owns a magnificent villa - but living larger than he should. To keep up he is stealing art on the side. At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is he the perfect candidate for the CEO position of the GPS company Pathfinder that Roger is currently recruiting for; he is also in possession of a very valuable painting. Roger sees his chance to become financially independent, and starts planning his biggest hit ever. He soon runs into trouble - and it's not financial problems that are threatening to knock him over this time. The headhunt has begun. HEADHUNTERS is based on the bestselling book by author Jo Nesbø.
