The Munoz Brothers (Paper Boats) are tapped to adapt Kristín Helga Gunnarsdóttir’s book Iceland’s Mountain Factory for television, reports Deadline. The young adult novel was inspired by the Greta Thunberg movement.



According to Deadline, the novel is centered around a crew of young graduates from a south-eastern Icelandic “mountaineering academy” who end up trapped in a strong storm. They seek refuge in an hut where they “set up a free state dedicated to nature and sustainability.” Events take a dramatic turn when one of the members, an esteemed environmentalist and influencer, is found dead.




The project is entitled The Mountain Factory and will come from the companies Inner Voice Artists and Immaterial Agents. The Los Angeles and Oslo-based companies recently formed a partnership “to co-rep book rights for film and TV adaptations,” Deadline stated. The series will be produced under Inner Voice Artists, and the company will co-sell book rights with Immaterial Agents.

Kristín Helga Gunnarsdóttir is a prominent Nordic author. She has over twenty-five books published, including a series centered around a character named Fíasól.
