The pitch was a bit like “Cannonball with sperm”. I first tried to set up this project in the United States, and I had a lot of fun encounters, a lot of laughs, but at the same time. Every time we moved up the hierarchy, there was always an executive who would break the mood and say: “No, we won't do that, and we won't go into that.” “. So I turned to towards Norway, where There are really no creative and artistic restrictions, where there is no restriction. no one comes to tell you that it's too much.

It wasn't the basic project, but with my screenwriters Geir Vegar Hoel and Jesper Sundnes we found something. some songs. I didn’t have the desire to do a musical, but when we started it’s one. à getting close to it, I loved it! the exercise, and it became something central in the development of the project. And ultimately, the singing and dancing became my favorite parts of the film.

Currently, Spermageddon is still playing. the search for an American distributor. With his unconventional themes, Tommy Wirkola admits his curiosity about as for the rating of the MPAA :

I am very curious to see what classification the film will have in the USA. It's a cute story, sure, but at the same time, it has daring themes that most American animated films don't have.
