Finland’s first superhero movie to German readers
The rights for the official novelisation of Rendel have been sold to Random House’s German imprint Heyne Verlag.
Rendel is the first full-length superhero film from Finland. It tells the tale of a regular citizen from the Finnish town of Mikkeli who acquires a thirst for revenge.
The film adaption was written by Finnish author Helena Waris and will be published in September.
“I’m freaking excited about this,” states director Jesse Haaja. “Honestly, I was so happy to get a Finnish release for the novel and now Germany – didn’t see it coming.”
Rendel is slated for release on 22 September in Finland, before rolling out to other markets internationally.
