Svalta: Nick Frost and Lena Headey to lead comedy-thriller film

Fighting with my family stars Nick Frost and Lena Headey are set to reunite in the upcoming comedy-thriller film titled Starve. Production is expected to begin sometime next year in Finland.

“Take a gentle English family and send them on vacation to a small Swedish island full of lunatics,” Frost said in a statement (per Deadline). “Simple. Not so much Nuts in May. More ‘Nuts in Mayhem.’ After working with Lena in Fighting with my family I couldn’t imagine anyone else in the world wanting to play Susan. So I was absolutely thrilled when I heard that not only had she read the script, but she actually liked it enough to do me the honor of saying yes and being my on-screen wife again.”

Starve will be directed by Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil from a script written by Frost, who will also act as producer. It is a production of Wayward Entertainment, Resolute Films, Film Service Finland and XYZ Films.

“The film will follow a family on their summer vacation to a remote island with a dark past,” reads the synopsis. “There they discover that a serial killer is on the loose and that the hostile locals, unfortunately for them, have no interest in helping them.”
