THE WAVE is an epic Scandinavian disaster movie based on true events. The film will be directed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (COLD PREY, 2006 and ESCAPE, 2012) and produced by Norwegian company FanteFilm Fiksjon who in current years has established themselves as the production company of large scale Scandinavian genre films.
Directed by Roar Uthaug is based on real predictions of a natural disaster, based on events from 80 years ago when a number of villages in Norway were hit by a huge tsunami after a mountainside collapsed in the fjords. Geologists say that it is just a matter of time before it happens again.
Starring Kristoffer Joner and Ane Dahl Torp, The Wave begins just prior to the incident in the present day and focuses on an experienced geologist who has less than 10 minutes to react when the alarm goes off.
