Karl Urban is in negotiations to star in “Pathfinder,” a Viking epic being made by Phoenix Pictures and helmer Marcus Nispel. 20th Century Fox is distributing. “Pathfinder” is a remake of the 1987 Norwegian film by helmer Nils Gaup to which Phoenix acquired the rights to in 2001. While the original followed Norway’s warlike clans around the year 1000 A.D., the new version, with a script by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis (“Alexander”), is set in North America around the same time, when Vikings inadvertently discovered the continent 500 years before Columbus.
