Viking Remake Decides to Go Urban

by | August 16, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Karl Urban is about to sign a deal to star in Fox’s "Pathfinder," which is the remake of a 1987 Norwegian film by Nils Gaup.

"While the original followed Norway’s warlike clans around the year 1000 A.D., the new version, with a script by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis ("Alexander"), is set in North America around the same time, when Vikings inadvertently discovered the continent 500 years before Columbus. The story centers on a Viking boy who accidentally is left behind during a skirmish between the Vikings and Americans Indians. The American Indians raise the boy as their own, but when their village is wiped out in a Viking raid, the adopted Viking becomes his people’s defender in battling the Norsemen."

"Pathfinder" will be directed by Marcus Nispel ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre").
