STXfilms is producing the film alongside Stockholm-based SF Films, with Mikael Marcimain set to direct.

Production will begin in Mauritius on 11 February.

The island nation in the western Indian Ocean is not established as a production hub but does offer a base 30% rebate as a filming incentive for features that spend at least $100,000 locally.

Recent productions have included Steven Knight’s mystery thriller Serenity, which used the island as a stand-in for the Florida Keys.

Islands in the Indian Ocean do not generally support large-scale international shoots. An exception has been Lucasfilm’s Star Wars movie Rogue One that shot scenes in the Maldives – producers imported 2,000 tonnes of sand and palm trees to create the specific tropical locale they were looking for.
