Wrath of Gods

At the beginning of July 2004, Canadian filmmakers Sturla Gunnarsson, Paul Stephens, Andrew Rai Berzins and Eric Jordan went to Iceland to make a movie, a co-production between Canada, the U.K. and Iceland. The cast included Gerard Butler (300, The Ugly Truth, Law Abiding Citizen, How To Train Your Dragon), Stellan Skarsgard (Pirates of the Caribbean, Good Will Hunting), Ronan Vibert, Sarah Polley, Eddie Marsan, Tony Curran and Ingvar Sigurdsson. It was the beginning of the most difficult project any of them had ever been a part of. A series of events continued to put the project in jeopardy. Halfway through production, the financing had not closed, the film was seriously over budget, and the bonder was alarmed enough to send a representative to Iceland. The entire production was put under intense scrutiny while the cast and crew were fighting the onset of a ruthless Icelandic winter and diminishing daylight.
