written by Ana on 07 September 2021

Our Jessie has been added to the casting list for a new project called The Hanging Sun which will be distributed by Sky Original.

The filming will start this month, September, in Norway, and will be directed by Francesco Carrozini, written by Stefano Bises and as photographer Nicolaj Bruel. Among the main cast is Alessandro Borghi, and Sam Spruell. It is based on the book ‘Midnight Sun’ by Jo Nesbo.

“The Hanging Sun” is a noir thriller set in the rarefied atmosphere of the Norwegian summer where the sun never sets, life and death intertwine, past and present overlap. John (Alessandro Borghi) is on the run. He finds shelter in the thick of the forest, near an isolated village in the far north, where religion dominates, the sun never sets and people seem to belong to another era. Between him and her fate there are only Lea (Jessica Brown Findlay), a woman in trouble but with great strength, and her son Caleb, a curious child with a pure heart. As the midnight sun blurs reality and imagination, John will have to face the tragic past that haunts him.

Director Francesco Carrozzini said: “My first film is a dream come true. The journey to get there was a long one, but I was accompanied by a wonderful group of creatives who love cinema as much as I do”
