Norwegian André Øvredal will be directing his first English-language horror film.



Named ‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’, it will begin production in London this winter with support from Britain’s Goldcrest films.

The movie is based on the original screenplay by Ian Golberg and Richard Naing. It follows two coroners, father and son, as they carry out an autopsy of a young woman.

The duo discovers increasingly strange clues to the victim’s cause of death as they proceed with the examination.

“'The Autopsy of Jane Doe' has everything I want in a horror movie – great characters, an intriguing mystery and it is simply of the scariest scripts I have ever read,” stated director André Øvredal.

“I’m proud to make this my follow-up to ‘Trollhunter’ and I am excited to be in business with Goldcrest,” he added.

‘Trollhunter’, from 2011, only earned minimal profit, grossing around four million dollars on a 3.5 million budget. The mockumentary has nevertheless gained a cult following among kooky horror movie enthusiasts.

Former Norway Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg also had a minor role in the film.
