'THE BLACK VIKING'
TO BECOME EPIC TV SERIES
Speaking of the news from the epic front, 'Deadline' reports today
that Paramount TV and Anonymous Content have bought the rights to 2013
novel THE BLACK VIKING by Icelandic author Bergsveinn Birgisson which
they want to turn into television series directed and produced by Morten
Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Passengers)! The author himself has led a
search for traces of his forefather Geirmund Heljarskinn, one of the
most powerful Viking kings in history whose saga has mysteriously
disappeared. If I got it right, he got the name BLACK VIKING because he
was black when he was born and was such an ugly baby that his mother, a
9th century queen, gave him away to be raised far from her.
