"VIKING DESTINY is a dream come true for the broad fan base of high-stakes fantasy-adventure films, and the addition of the world-renowned, multiple-award-winning actor TERENCE STAMP brings the film to a whole new level," said Epstein who is also an executive producer on the project.
In VIKING DESTINY, Odin, the Norse god of war and wisdom, is played by STAMP. The adventure film centers on a young Norse girl, the rightful heir to the Viking kingdom, who is banished after she's framed for the murder of her father, the king. Written and directed by David L.G. Hughes, the film explores the legendary crusades of Scandinavian explorers.
“I’m beyond thrilled that audiences will get a sneak-peak into VIKING DESTINY during AFM." Said Hughes. “Filming this summer in Northern Ireland - the land of Game of Thrones, with so many of the ‘Thrones’ crew, allowed me to fulfill all of my wildest ambitions for the script. Add the dream casting of Terence Stamp as the Viking God Odin, and the non-stop action, and we have something truly exciting.”
