A NEW ‘Viking village’ in the Glens has film buffs all abuzz.

That’s because a film set has appeared perched above the North Channel in the shadows of the old coastguard station at Torr Head.

The small cluster of buildings has been linked locally to upcoming Hollywood movie ‘The Northman’.

Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and brothers Alexander and Bill Skarsgard are just some of the huge names tipped to star in Robert Eggers’ 10th century revenge drama which is set in Iceland.

The story centres around a Nordic Prince on a mission to avenge his father’s death.

It was reported last month that director, Robert Eggers, had moved to Northern Ireland to prepare for the movie which is set to be produced this year.
