Hauschka (aka Volker Bertelmann) has signed on to score the upcoming biographical drama Young Astrid. The film is directed by Pernille Fischer Christensen (A Soap, A Family) and stars Alba August in the title role, alongside Maria Bonnevie, Magnus Krepper, Trine Dyrholm, Henrik Rafaelsen and Björn Gustafsson. The movie focuses on an event that occurred when Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren was very young and that came to shape her adult life, writing talent and aspirations. Kim Fupz Aakeson wrote the screenplay. Anna Anthony is producing the project for Avanti Film, alongside Lars G Lindström for Nordisk Film. Young Astrid is set to premiere in 2018.

Hauschka’s other upcoming projects also include Hotel MumbaiAshes in the Snow and the Showtime & Sky Atlantic limited series Patrick Melrose. The composer who received an Academy Award nomination earlier this year for Lion has also recently co-scored Garth Davis’ The Current War, which is set to be released on November 24, 2017.

    His name is listed as Volker Bertelmann on IMDb. Is Bergemann yet another name? Can’t he pick one?
