Kristofer Hivju, whom you may know as Tormund Giantsbane on HBO’s Game of Thrones, has co-written a thriller called Twin. Here is the show’s description via Variety:
A Hivju passion project which he created with Metcalfe, with the duo developing the project over near 15 years, “Twin” kicks off in the Lofoten Islands where cliffs fall near sheer 4,000 feet to fjords. A very cold-water surfing mecca north of the Arctic Circle, it is home to Erik, a surfer bum who hasn’t seen his identical twin Adam – a businessman with a successful family business, doting wife, picture-perfect family – for 15 years. When Eric loses everything, he reaches out to Adam, who totally rejects him. A quarrel breaks out; Erik and Ingrid, Adam’s wife, accidentally kill Adam. To cover the crime, and to save his brother’s family, Erik takes over Adam’s identity.
Twins will be an 8 episode mini-series directed by Kristoffer Metcalfe, who is also a co-writer. It will be shot in Norway, and produced by Moskus Films. According to Variety, the series will makes its debut at Series Mania’s April 18 Co-production Forum.
