Expect Mads Mikkelsen to face off against wolves and highwaymen in his quest to rid the land of threats in the name of the king.
Mads Mikkelsen will reunite with director Nicolaj Arcel to make King’s Land, it is announced. The actor previously worked with Arcel in 2012 A royal affair and the duo will return to the period drama genre for their next project.
King’s land is set to be an action-packed take on the genre as Mikkelsen and co-star, Raised by wolves Amanda Collin, find their characters trying to bring order to an uncivilized part of 17th century Denmark.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The story follows Danish King Frederik V’s attempt to take, cultivate and colonize a ruthless region populated by wolves and highwaymen. Mikkelsen will play Ludwig von Kahlen, a military captain bent on taming the wild lands for the king. Collin will play Ann Barbara, a mysterious woman who crosses paths with Kahlen, changing her fate forever.
The project is slated to hit cameras in September and sports a budget of around $8.5 million. Mikkelsen is good value in everything he puts his name to, so we’ll be keeping an eye on this one and updating you as we find out more.
