Sweden’s Baker and Alexander Karim shooting pandemic flick Me/We
- The new production is set during an outbreak that threatens humanity, and sees a pastor and a doctor stuck in a hotel
Another pandemic film is in the making in Sweden, following the earlier announcement of Josephine Bornebusch’s social-distancing drama Orca (see the news). This month, Baker and Alexander Karim started filming Me/We, penned by popular Swedish novelist Camilla Läckberg. Baker is best known as a director and debuted in 2001 with the drama Four Women, whilst Alexander has starred in a number of popular Swedish films, TV series and music videos over the last 20 years.
Me/We follows a pastor (played by Alexander Karim) and a doctor (Dilan Gwyn). During a pandemic that threatens humanity, the two are stuck in a hotel, somewhere in Europe. The project has been described as “a film about humanity. About love. And a threat that unites.” Gwyn, a rising talent in her own country, has recently appeared in the TV series Love Me (2019) and in Caroline Fourest’s action flick Sisters in Arms [+see also:
film profile] (2019).
Me/We is being produced by Bad Flamingo, a new film outfit founded by the two brothers and Läckberg.
According to dagensmedia.se, which first reported the news, Me/We will be released in autumn 2020.
