SF Studios has begun filming the supernatural thriller CYKOSE with two of the country’s big new talents Zoe Bryan Hertz and August Issac Carter. The film is based on Birgitte Lorentzens book by the same name. CYKOSE is directed by Kari Vidø, written by Birgitte Lorentzsen and Henrik Kristensen.
CYKOSE is based on the first book in Birgitte Lorentzens popular CYKOSE trilogy. The CYKOSE Trilogy has collected huge acknowledgement and is the first Danish novel to be nominated to the prestigious French book award “Le Prix de Incorruptibles”.
CYKOSE is a dark and intense story about Lulu and Mads, who both have experienced something extreme and supernatural. The meeting between them, leads to a wild and risky search for answers, that ends up having consequences for them both. It is raw realism merged with a supernatural universe.
After a party with a little too many shots, Lulu ends up in the hospital, where she in a near-death-experience sees a crowned girl, screaming for help. When Lulu comes to her senses, the girl is gone. But from this moment, nothing is as it was. It is like someone, or something is following her. At the same time, she meets the infamous, but fascinating Mads, who turns out to be able to see thing, no one else can. Had Lulu known, what would happen and what it would lead to, she would have stayed far away from Mads…
Producer Julie Rix Bomholt says: “It is an incredible and unique opportunity to work with a pure genre film which also touches an important and current theme. Zoe and August ARE Lulu and Mads, and we pinch ourselves to have found two such talented and young actors. They have a very special presence and a mutual intensity that almost sparks. We can’t wait to watch their talent unfold on the camera and on the big screen”.
21 years old Zoe Bryan Hertz, who portrays the main character Lulu, was first noticed in Jonas Rigsvigs DR-series “Salsa” and again in his criminal-series “Drenge”. It is Zoe’s first big lead, her first movie and first time to play opposite August Issac Carter. August, 25 years old, who portrays Mads, has graduated from Den Danske Scenekunstskole in Copenhagen, and recently got the part of the lead character in the DR3-series “Hooligan”. He has previously had a minor part in Martin Zandvliets “Under sandet” and the Netflix-series “Equinox”. August has just premiered in the award-winning show “Arven” at the royal Danish theatre.
CYKLOSE is filmed in Copenhagen and on Frederiksberg where it began filming this Monday and is set to have last day of filming in the beginning of May. CYKOSE is set to premiere in March 2024.

The popular series about Carl Mørck and Department Q, is returning to the big screen with the film adaption of the 6th book. The new Danish crime thriller 'Boundless' is based on fiction guru Jussi Adler-Olsen’s 'Den Grænseløse'.
Nordisk Film has confirmed that ‘Boundless’ has started filming in the beginning of September 2022, where Rasmus Hammerich has landed a supporting role. The filming takes place in Latvia, Copenhagen and on the Danish island Bornholm, where the movie is also set. The popular duo of Carl Mørck and his assistant Assad is sent on a mission to the Danish island, where an old mystery about a dead girl hanging from a tree is brought to life and leads to a secret solar cult on the island.
“’Boundless’ is a thought-provoking and fascinating thriller about revenge, power and submission, but especially about the limitlessness of people. In a world like today that has so many ways never been more limitless, ‘Boundless’ becomes unsettlingly present and current. Jakob Weis has written a nerve-wracking, action-packed and characterful script based on Jussi's book. And I agreed to direct the film because I think it has great potential to be an entertaining and relevant thriller with a creepy look into a fascinating and closed world.” Ole Christian Madsen says about making the movie.
'Boundless' is set to be released in theatres on feburary 1st 2024.

The original series is composed of six episodes and set in Denmark and is created and written by Stefan Jaworski (Those Who Kill, The Candidate), directed by Roni Ezra (The New Nurses) and produced by Elise H. Lund for Miso Film. Elves is based on an original idea of Jannik Tai Mosholt and Christian Potalivo (The Rain), who also serve as executive producers together with Peter Bose and Jonas Allen from Miso Film.
Peter Bose, CEO & Producer at Miso Film says: "With our new Netflix show Elves we continue the strong partnership we have been building with Netflix through three seasons of The Rain. Elves is a Christmas horror show exploring the premise ‘What if Elves were real and dangerous? and once again Netflix shows that they dare when others don't. We praise that Netflix opens the doors to new genres which we couldn't afford to develop and produce in the past in our local market. Elves will be shot entirely in the greater area of Copenhagen and we look very much forward to giving Netflix' subscribers a unique take on the Christmas genre".
Tesha Crawford, Director Netflix International Originals Northern Europe: “There are a lot of reasons why we are excited about this new Danish production. First off, teaming up again with our long term partners at Miso Film - who have proven to be such great storytellers. Secondly, tapping into the local myths that have always such great resonance in the Nordic region and being able to transform this into a modern day Christmas story- with a little touch of horror.”
