 Comment on Susanne Bier to helm Bergman biopic

Danish director Susanne Bier ("Brødre," "Things We Lost In the Fire") will direct a four-part mini about the life of Swedish wirter/director/actor Ingmar Bergman for  Sveriges Television (SvT) and the series will also be made into a feature film for theatrical release.

Shooting starts in fall of 2011. SvT will produce. Gunnar Carlsson will serve as an executive producer and Christian Wikander as producer. Pic is budgeted at $12 million and is one of the most expensive projects SvT has ever taken part in.

According to Variety, the mini is written by Swedish author Henning Mankell (married to Bergman's daughter Eva) and the first completed the first two episodes. The first is "Frenzy" and the second "Sawdust and Tinsel" - named after Bergman films.
