Icelandic Set Designer to Work with Bigelow Again

hurtlocker-posterKarl Júlíusson, an award-winning set designer from Iceland who collaborated with US director Kathryn Bigelow on The Hurt Locker, which earned her the Oscar for Best Director last year, will now resume his collaboration with her.

The working title of the film they are collaborating on is Sleeping Dogs and takes place in Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil but will probably be shot in Argentina and Chile, Fréttabladid reports.

“The project doesn’t get any bigger than this,” Júlíusson said. Star actors Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp are expected to play the lead roles.
