Director Baltasar Kormákur along with Trapped showrunner Sigurjón Kjartansson is set to film a Netflix supernatural drama series at an Icelandic Vulcano. 

The two Icelanders of each Everest (2015) and Trapped fame, have teamed up for an eight-part series about the small town of Vik, which is next to the active subglacial volcano Katla.

Deadline.com describes the plot:

” […] is set in Iceland and begins one year after the violent eruption […] Katla, which dramatically disturbs the peace […] As people evacuate the area, the ice near the volcano starts to melt. The few remaining people manage to provide necessary community service and despite its grand location the area turns out somewhat apocalyptic. Mysterious elements, that have been deeply frozen into the glacier from prehistoric times, start to emerge from the melting ice and cause consequences no one could have ever foreseen,” writes Deadline’s Peter White.

The series is written by Kjartansson, Lilja Sigurðardóttir, and Davíð Már Stefánsson, and production will start in 2020 by Kormákur’s own RVK Studios.

“Iceland has been the home for so many series and films over the years. We are excited to be able to feature it’s breathtaking surroundings in a story that is so grounded in Icelandic themes. Working with such an acclaimed talent like Baltasar Kormákur makes this project a perfect set up for us. We can’t wait to see this story come to life and bring it to our members all across the globe,” commented Tesha Crawford, Director Netflix International Originals Northern Europe.
