RIGA: The English language Latvian historical drama The Pagan King, directed by Aigars Grauba and starring British actor James Blurr and Swedish actor Edvin Erre, will be theatrically released in the UK this year.
Lightbulb Film Distribution is the UK distributor.
Made with a budget of 3 m EUR, the film produced by Platforma Filma and supported by the National Film Centre of Latvia is one of the most expensive Latvian films to date.
“With no doubt we can say that this is the biggest epic film made in Latvia,” producer Kristians Alhimionoks from Platforma Filma told FNE.
The film was shot from 2014 to 2017 and German rights had been bought by Ascot Elite Entertainment even before the film was completed.
