Just one day after Warner Bros. Discovery said that its streaming service HBO Max would no longer produce originals in the Nordics, Netflix announced it has ordered a Swedish comedy film about a 40-year-old reliving her best day again and again.
One More Time stars Hedda Stiernstedt (Beforeigners, The Restaurant), Miriam Ingrid (Beartown), Elinor Silfversparre Fahlén and Maxwell Cunningham. It will be directed by Student Academy Award winner Jonatan Etzler.
The project is based on an original idea by Mikael Ljung and is written by Tove Forsman and Sofie Forsman (Young Royals, The Playlist).
According to Netflix, Stiernstedt plays Amelia, 40, who is hit by a bus the night of her birthday and wakes up back in 2002, on her 18th birthday, "with the chance to relive her best day and make her life the perfect vision of what she’d intended it to be. But when she starts to wake up again and again on this same day, she has to figure out the key to what she needs to fix in order to literally leave the past behind and return to the present day."
Said Stiernstedt: "I am so excited for this project to come alive. The timing for a retrospect lookback on the early 2000s feels right, and diving into that era is filled with so much joy. I’m working together with the talented Jonatan Etzler and a group of very gifted actors. We’re having a great time working together, and I think that will be noticeable in the final result."
The film will premiere globally on Netflix sometime in 2023.
