So There Will Be Norwegians in The Thing

And here’s who is playing them

A tipster dropped us a line this morning with a list of the actors comprising the Norwegian cast of The Thing.

A prequel to the 1982 John Carpenter classic, Matthijs van Heijningen’s film concerns the Norwegian crew stationed in Antarctica that uncovers an alien life form. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Death Proof) and Joel Edgerton star and according to our source Dennis Storhøi (The 13th Warrior), Trond Espen Seim (The Frost), Jørgen Langhelle (Svik), Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju (Manhunt) and Jo Adrian Haavind join them.

Principal photography is taking place in both British Columbia and Toronto. Click here for yesterday’s news item which finds the producers commenting on this Universal production.
