- There is no doubt that we are now going to make a feature film, but I have also not given up the idea of a tv series. It comes in that case in addition to the film. We have all the way thought that it can be both series and movie. What happened in Narvik is so much and huge that one must use a serieformat to justify it, " says Aaberge.

It is the English story which are affected the most by this. It is also linked with that we have had with some englishmen on the project, even though we have been in London twice and had a series of meetings there. The british are so self-centered that if it is not about them, they will not.Unorthodox launch
