For those of you who stopped keeping up with Scandinavian crime thrillers once the final American film installment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series was made, you’ll be glad to know that Americans are still keen on adapting novels from the Land of the Midnight Sun.
Best-selling Swedish author Liza Marklund‘s series, featuring crime journalist Annika Bengtzon, has been optioned for a pilot called “Exposed”, set to air on ABC. According to Deadline, “Exposed” “centers on an investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, including making questionable alliances.”
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, starring in the role of (the Americanized) Anna, got a lot of coffee at Ritual while filming in between downpours of rain. Winstead was reportedly a hot commodity going into the pilot season and turned down a number of roles before she was cast in “Exposed”. Other projects you may remember her from run the gamut from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to the indie flick Smashed.
With “Exposed” following hot on the heels of HBO’s successful new series “Looking”, we’re looking forward to more projects looking to the hills and fog of San Francisco when it’s time to choose a location.
