A sequel to the film version of Leif GW Persson’s books are planned , according to Aftonbladet.
Now owns an American film company the rights to the character Evert Backstrom – which suits the author of criticizing the actor Claes Malmberg, who made the role in Sweden.
– Now I will not have to say ate writer to write him off, says Leif GW Persson told Aftonbladet.
It is not the first time that Leif GW Persson directed a hard boot against Claes Malmberg after his portrayal of the character Evert Backstrom in the SVT series “The fourth man.”
– I think Claes Malmberg plays over violently. He’s not particularly like Backstrom and has made him a regular fart, Persson said after the miniseries aired in December last year.
“The Fourth Man” was a sequel in the hit “A pilgrim’s death,” both two based on Leif GW Persson’s trilogy “The welfare state’s case.”
According to Aftonbladet, there are now plans for a sequel, and SVT will have the hope that they can start recording next year.
“So fucking tired”
The series’ main roles Rolf Lassgård and Helena af Sandberg reported to be planning to participate again this time.
Meanwhile, the rights to the character Evert Backstrom sold to an American company, that has made the series “Backstrom.”
Evert Backstrom will not be included in the planned film version.
Leif GW Persson said to be satisfied with Claes Malmberg missing from the cast.
– I’m so fucking tired of him. His design was certainly not remarkable. Non! It was no picnic. He has missed the notion that Backstrom is not really so damn simple. The character is a nasty bastard if you ask me, says Persson told Aftonbladet.
Malmberg answer in the newspaper on criticism:
– The starting to get ridiculous. It is left for him.
For Expressen said Malmberg last winter – after Persson’s first criticism – that he had no problems with opening lead:
– It is allowed to stand for him. I have been praised by others. I play the director tells me to play.
