Björk's Viking film project 'The Northman' set for 2022 release

The Northman, the Viking film project from Björk and esteemed director Robert Eggers has been given a 2022 release date and continues to gather up hype as it gets ready for its premiere next spring.

The film is set in 10th century Iceland and will star Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke. It sees a Viking prince set out to find justice for his murdered father.

Though Björk is naturally connected to the subject matter, having being everybody favourite Icelander for some time, it is under the guidance of Eggers that the film really took shape.

Eggers co-wrote the screenplay alongside Icelandic poet Sjón. The poet has previously worked alongside Björk on songs ‘Jóga’, ‘Cosmogony’, ‘Oceania’ among others.

Released by Universal, The Northman will premiere on April 8, 2022, and is set to be another memorable note in Björk’s impressive career.
