Swedish Flesh Eaters on their Way to the Big Screen in Stallo
Humans. For as long as we've been inhabiting this planet, someone or something has been waiting for a chance to munch on our flesh. Why this is, is anyone's guess as we're notoriously filthy animals, but hey, whatever.
Variety reports that Swedish helmer Mikael Marcimain will adapt the suspense bestseller Stallo by Stefan Spjut.
Stallo, which has been compared with Let the Right One In, depicts a grey everyday Sweden with supernatural elements. Instead of vampires, countryman Marcimain will have to deal with “stallos,” human-like creatures who like to eat people.
The sophomore novel already sold to 15 countries before its local release last week from Albert Bonniers, Sweden’s biggest publishing house. The film's producer is Anna Croneman at Stockholm-based production company Bob Film. Croneman told local newspapers the adaptation would be an international production, set to shoot in 2014-15.
More as it comes.
