The shooting takes place by the harbor at Stadur on Reykjanes and the project in veiled in secrecy; security guards make sure that no trespassers get into the area and it is prohibited to take photos at the shooting location, as reported on the municipality’s website.

A ship with a pram carrying the set in tow arrived at the harbor of Reykhólar yesterday. It is thought that around 20 Icelanders from the Skuggi theater company will play minor parts in the film.
