Director Tomas Alfredson has certainly taken his time in choosing a follow-up project to his slow-burn 2011 espionage pic Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but it appears that he has now made up his mind. THR reports that Alfredson will next direct an adaptation of the classic Swedish fantasy novel The Brothers Lionheart, which was previously turned into a film in 1977 by director Olle Hellbom. Author Astrid Lindgren’s source material revolves around two brothers who meet up in the afterlife and have fantastic adventures.
Tinker Tailor scribe Peter Straughan and Let the Right One In screenwriter John Ajvide Lindqvist penned the screenplay for The Brothers Lionheart, which is set for a Christmas 2014 release in Sweden. Swiss cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (The Fighter, Interstellar) will act as director of photography. Last year we heard that Alfredson was still working on the script for a Tinker Tailor follow-up, but it appears that Brothers Lionheart is taking priority at the moment. Watch the trailer for the 1977 iteration after the jump.
