The film, Northmen – A Viking Saga is described on IMDB as:

A band of Vikings cross enemy lines and a panicked race begins. The losers will pay with their lives.

Sounds about right! Hegg will play the role of Viking warrior Valli and will report to South Africa to shoot his scenes later this month and Johan is pumped, commenting:

"The mythology behind our Viking heritage is engrained in everything we do and it is awesome to have the opportunity to be part of Northmen – A Viking Saga. This is going to be one epic adventure and I cannot wait to be on set with my co-stars and this fantastic filmmaking team!"

Other notable actors in the film include that one dude from True Blood and that one dude from Game of Thrones.

The movie is slated for release in October of next year.
