Hedda Stierstedt (“Beforeigners”) will play the lead in the Swedish comedy “One More Time,” which Netflix has given the green light to produce.
With this movie, Jonatan Etzler will make his feature film directorial debut on Netflix in 2023.
Stiernstedt portrays Amelia, a 40-year-old who gets struck by a bus on her birthday, in “One More Time.”
Amelia is 18 again and the year is 2002, allowing her to make up for all the errors she made the first time around.
She awakens every morning on her 18th birthday, but as she becomes trapped in a “Groundhog Day” time loop
“I am really happy for this concept to come to life,” Stiernstedt stated. “The time for a look back on the early 2000s feels right, and plunging into that era is so much fun.”
The film was written by Tove Forsman and Sofie Forsman (“Young Royals”) based on an original idea by Mikael Ljung. Breakable’s Eleonor Sager creates.
