After breaking out with American audiences in the box office hit Tomb Raider reboot in 2018, director Roar Uthaug is returning to his home country of Norway for the monster movie Troll, which has just been greenlit by Netflix, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Inspired by Scandinavian legend and based on an original idea from Uthaug, the film will center on the titular gigantic creature awakening from within the Norwegian mountains, where it has been trapped for 1,000 years and goes on a rampage through the countryside towards the country’s capital of Oslo.

Troll is an idea that has been developing in the back of my mind for over 20 years,” said Uthaug. “To finally be able to realize it with the enthusiastic and ambitious people at Netflix and Motion Blur is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to unleash this Norwegian monster on the world.

The film will be produced by Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud of Norwegian production banner Motion Blur, who previously worked with the streaming platform on Cadaver, which is set to premiere on Netflix in Norway this October.

We are incredibly proud to bring a Norwegian project of this scale to the world together with Roar Uthaug and Motion Blur,” David Kosse, VP of International Original Film at Netflix, said in a statement. “Roar is an extremely skilled filmmaker and I’m excited for him to go back to his Norwegian roots with this ambitious, fun film.”

Though no production start date or cast has been confirmed, Troll is slated to hit Netflix worldwide sometime in 2022.
