Synopsis:

In the 9th century a group of Vikings, commanded by captain Asbjörn, is approaching Britain, aiming to plunder the rich monasteries in the north of the island. But their ship gets caught in a storm and is smashed to pieces on the rocks off the coast of Scotland, the only part of Britain without any Viking settlements. When Inghean, daughter of the Scottish King Dunchaid, by chance falls into Viking hands, they see the opportunity for demanding a large ransom. King Dunchaid immediately sets his “wolfpack” – a group of mercenaries well known for their savagery – on them. The Northmen with their hostage now have to force their way through the rough highlands, where they meet the brave and mysterious Christian monk Conall. Having the wolfpack close on their heels, a desperate race against time begins. A battle over life and death…

New Photograph of True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten in Northmen – A Viking Saga

November 7, 2013

Northmen – A Viking Saga Due for Release in 2014:

Northmen - A Viking Saga promo posterRyan Kwanten is probably best known as Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) hot but (mostly) clueless brother, Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood. As for Vikings, the hottest one we know goes to Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) – but that just may be about to change!

Kwanten is starring as Conall in Northmen – A Viking Saga, due for release in 2014. While technically not a Viking, Conall is actually a Christian monk who likes his sword as much as his Viking counterparts. You can read the synopsis below:

A gang of Viking marauders under the command of their young leader, Asbjörn, bear down on the coast of Britain, intent on pillaging Lindisfarne of its gold. But, caught in a vicious storm, their longboat is dashed to pieces on the rocks off Scotland. Trapped deep within enemy territory, the shipwrecked mens’ only chance of survival is to reach the safety of the Viking stronghold Danelag.

With only the enigmatic Conall, a monk who preaches with his sword to help them, they cut a bloody swath through anyone who gets in their way. But the journey becomes a race for their lives when the King of Scotland sends his most feared mercenaries, the Wolf Pack, after them. Traversing an unfamiliar and hostile land, they are pursued relentlessly. However the hunters become the hunted when the Vikings, eager for battle, set deadly traps and mercilessly decimate their pursuers one by one…

Wow! This sounds good. While the movie is still filming, the principle photography has just been completed. You can check out the first official promo still below.
