RARE EXPORTS Director Jalmari Helander Helming a WWII Action Film Titled IMMORTAL — GeekTyrant

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions acquired the rights to director Jalmari Helander’s next film project, a World War II action film Immortal. Helander is the director behind films such as Rare Exports and Big Game.

The movie stars Jorma Tommila (Rare Exports) and Paul Anderson (The Revenant, Peaky Blinders). The story is set in 1945, and it follows an ex-soldier named Aatami (Tommila), “who discovers gold in the deep wilderness of Lapland. When he attempts to take his loot into the city, a squadron of Nazi soldiers led by a brutal SS officer (Anderson) get in his way and a battle for the gold ensues between the lone soldier and the Nazis.”

Helander shared in a statement, “To make an action film in Finland has been a dream of mine since I was 10 years old. Finally I am in a situation where I can fulfill my dream and make an epic, action-packed survival story which takes place in World War II.”

This sounds like it’ll be a cool WWII movie! I really liked Rare Exports and I’m sure the director is going to do some fun things with this next flick of his.
