Mads Mikkelsen has already done a massive range of shows and films over the years but he continues to be best remembered for his amazing performance as Hannibal Lector in Hannibal.
And now, Mikkelsen is all set and rolling to be a part of dark comedy, Riders of Justice.
According to Variety, Mikkelsen will star in the film alongside Nikolaj Lie Kaas (“The Department Q Series”), Lars Brygmann (“That Time of the Year), Nicolas Bro (“Nymphomaniac”), Gustav Lindh (“Queen of Hearts”), Roland Møller (“Valhalla”) and the newcomer Andrea Heick Gadeberg (“Daniel”).
The story revolves Markus, a deployed military man who has to go home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. It seems to be plain bad luck – but it turns out that it might have been a carefully orchestrated assassination, which his wife ended up being a random casualty of.
“We are really excited to be on board this Zentropa production and look forward to diving into the quirky universe, which Anders Thomas Jensen has created in this brilliant script,” said Susan Wendt, the managing director of TrustNordisk.
The film just started shooting and is being produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Sidsel Hybschmann for Zentropa Entertainments3, and is co-produced by Film I Väst and Zentropa Sweden.
Riders of Justice is expected to be released in December.
