Netflix has announced details about its recent comedy Sci-fi film, “Blasted,” inspired by the real-life UFO phenomenon in Hessdalen, Norway. “It is very exciting to be the first Norwegian Sci-Fi comedy in production," Are Heidenstrøm, Producer, and CEO of Miso Film Norway said. "We feel very privileged to work with Netflix and to make a film in such an unorthodox genre. Emanuel Nordrum and Martin Sofiedal have created an amazing story where we finally get clarity in the light phenomenon in Hessdalen.”

Written by Emanuel Nordrum and produced by Are Heidenstrøm at Miso Film, it will be directed by Martin Sofiedal.“Miso Film has been fantastic partners throughout the years and we are looking forward to introducing Blasted to our members worldwide with its bold new concept to come out of the region, sharp humor, and enjoyable action scenes,”  Claire Willats, Director, International Original Film Nordics said. “With such a talented creative team and Martin Sofiedal directing, I’m expecting this film to be a fun and fresh addition to our growing Nordics film slate.” 

"Blasted"'s star cast members include Axel Bøyum and Fredrik Skogsrud in the leading roles as Sebastian and Mikkel. Joining the pair are Mathias Luppichini, André Sørum, Eirik Hallert, Evelyn Rasmussen Osazuwa and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal. Blasted follows childhood friends Sebastian and Mikkel, who are reunited for Sebastian’s bachelor party.

While Mikkel never matured past teenage laser tag-prodigy, Sebastian has grown into a dedicated worker who’s using the party to draw in a potential client. Once the bachelor party leads to an alien invasion, it’s up to Mikkel and Sebastian to reunite and fight back.
