Ridley Scott’s TV Series, Filmed in Croatia, Ready for Premiere

By 28 March 2018

ZAGREB, March 28, 2018 - A new Ridley Scott- produced film series, The Terror, shot on the Croatian island of Pag in April 2017, will have the world premiere on the AMC cable network on March 29, the Croatian Audio Visual Centre (HAVC), which provided incentives for the project, said on Wednesday.

The ten-episode series, inspired by a true story, is based on the eponymous novel by Dan Simmons about a Royal Navy expedition in a search for the Arctic Northwest Passage. In conditions of fierce winter and ice, an abandoned crew tries to survive despite limited sources of food, water and weapons, the fear of the unknown and the lack of faith.

The actual expedition of 1845 ended with more than 120 crew members gone missing, and the circumstances of their disappearance were never determined. After almost 175 years the expedition's ships were found accidentally by Arctic research groups.

The film project involved 208 film workers from Croatia, including 57 extras, and the filming lasted from 3 to 30 April, 2017. The film features Jared Harris as Captain Francis Cozier, Tobias Menzies as Captain James Fitzjames, and Ciaran Hinds as Sir John Franklin.

Executive producers are Ridley Scott, David Kajganich and Soo Hugh, with Ambasada Film as the Croatian service producer.
