The film will chronicle the horrific crimes carried out by mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik.
Acclaimed director Paul Greengrass will helm a film about the brutal 2011 terrorist attacks that took place in Norway and took the lives of 77 people.
Anyone whose seen his takes on real life events will be aware of his penchant for hard-hitting, realistic recreation. Captain Phillips Bloody Sunday and United 93 were all visceral, essential pieces of cinema that put you right in the thick of it.
The film will detail the bonechilling attacks carried out by right wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik. Breivik killed 8 people when he detonated a bomb outside the prime minsters headquaters. He then donned a police uniform, took a ferry to an island and shot dead 69 more people on at a Labor Party Youth Camp. Brevik was eventually sentenced to 21 years in prison, but is not expected to ever be released.
It'll be interesting to see how Greengrass tackles such difficult subject matter, but no doubt the final product will be a gut-wrenching sit through. Filming is expected to take place later this year, according to Deadline.
