‘Kon-Tiki’ Director Espen Sandberg Helms New Survival Film Called ‘Beast’

Rakuten, The H Collective, and Director Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki 2012) are excited to bring to the screen a new survival thriller called The Beast. The film is in pre-production and currently stars Morena Baccarin (Deadpool 2016).


The Beast is a hard-hitting survival thriller about a woman who survives a plane crash and is stranded on a seemingly deserted island in the South Pacific. She must fight to get back to her children, face her inner demons and a real threat of unimaginable proportions.

Director Espen Sandberg notes:

“For me, The Beast is a story about a woman that is forced to break out of her victim mentality by finding her inner strength and courage to fight for herself and reclaim her life. It is a survival story on both a psychological and physical level that I believe will intrigue, thrill and hopefully inspire the audience. The Beast is a refreshing merge of genres with horror, thriller, action and dramatic elements, with a strong female lead and important theme. It couldn’t be more timely!”

There’s more to come as it is released, so stay tuned to PopHorror for more details!
