Check out a new, full-length domestic trailer and posters for Morten Tyldum‘s Norwegian heist film Headhunters, which is based on a Jo Nesbo‘s (one of the most popular crime novelists in the region) 2008 novel
The movie revolves around a distinguished gentleman named Roger Brown who works as a successful corporate headhunter by day, but at night just so happens to be a highly skilled art thief. When he attempts the biggest heist of his life, things don’t go according to plan and he finds himself involved in a “dangerous game of cat and mouse.”
Here’s the synopsis for the film
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 Nesbo.
The film stars Aksel Hennie, Synnøve Macody Lund, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg penned the screenplay.
Headhunters comes to theaters April 27th, 2012.
