‘Nightwatch – Demons Are Forever’

Nordisk Film Production presents the nerve-wracking thriller 'Nightwatch - Demons Are Forever'. After 29 years, director Ole Bornedal is ready with the sequel to the Danish cult phenomenon 'Nightwatch'. Ulf Pilgaard is back in the role as Commissioner Wörmer, and Christopher Læssø stars in a supporting role.

Young medical student Emma decides to find out what happened in the basement of the Department of Forensic Medicine almost 30 years ago, when her parents Martin and Kalinka were nearly killed by the psychopathic serial killer Commissioner Wörmer. Emma takes a student job as a night watchman at the same place and initiates an unauthorized meeting with Wörmer in his isolation cell in the psychiatric department at Sct. Hans Hospital. The meeting awakens the commissioner from a long-term coma and sets in motion a bloody revenge against all those who in his time sealed his fate. Now it's up to Emma to find the connection and stop the madness.

Nordisk Film Production and Ole Bornedal have assembled an exceptionally strong cast consisting of several of the actors from the first film as well as some of the biggest and most acclaimed Danish actors of the time. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ('Game of Thrones') is back in the role of Martin, who is now heavily traumatized by the horrors of the past at Forensic Medicine.

After major roles in international TV series, such as HBO's 'Killing Eve' (2018-2022) and Netflix's 'The Witcher' (2019-), Kim Bodnia is back in her first Danish film role in 9 years. He returns in the role of Jens, who made him a well-known Danish face 29 years ago. New to the cast is Fanny Bornedal in the lead role as Martin's daughter Emma.

Thomas Heinesen produces for Nordisk Film Production. The film is supported by The Danish Film Institute, Den Vestdanske Filmpulje and Nordisk Film & TV Fond in collaboration with DR, ZDF and Nadcon.

Bornedal said of the sequel: “'Nightwatch' is about legacy. About the silence in families. About the traumas and cuts and wounds that are allowed to live through generations. And in addition, it is exciting to return to the condensed genre that horror is. Kiss the demons - pull them into the light for a little moment. Look them in the eyes and think: “Good thing it’s only a film”.

'Nightwatch - Demons Are Forever' opens in theaters on December 14, 2023.

Director Bille August says:” To have Ehrengard filmed as a Netflix-movie is a big oppotunity – and I am thrilled to introduce this fascinating story about seduction and lust to a global audience. The queen has created the most amazing decoupage to the event, and they will be the dominant feature of the film’s overall scenographic expression.”

Christopher Læssø in ‘Empire’

Christopher Læssø stars in a supporting role in 'Empire'. The feature film will celebrate the world premiere in the Nordic Competition at Göteborgborg Film Festival starting on January 26.

EMPIRE is a story about power and mutual addiction, and with both deep seriousness and absurd humor it challenges the Danish historical amnesia. The movie is set on Saint Croix, the Danish west Indian islands, and the year is 1848. Anna Heegaard and Petrine is close friends. They are both women of color, but their way of life are completely different. Anna is a free woman and owner of the enslaved Petrine. Anna is living with the general governor Peter von Scholten at their country house, where she runs the house, the economy, and the beloved and trusted housekeeper Petrine. Everything is as it’s supposed to be, until the rumor about a rebellion begins to spread. Which side is Anna and Petrine standing on - and is it the same? 

EMPIRE is nominated for the main competition at Gøteborg Film Festival and the prestigious Dragon Award, and thereby gets its world premiere at the film festival.

EMPIRE is Frederikke Aspöcks first historical project: “The movie turns the Danish colonial history upside down and challenges Denmark’s romanticized self-image. The world history is as known written by and for white men. EMPIRE has therefore conscious placed Afro-Caribbean female characters in the center of the narrative – enslaved as well as free”, says Frederikke Aspöck. 

Anna Neye continues: “The same way women have been outwritten from the history of Denmark, the many colored Danish lives, have been as well. Visibility matters. EMPIRE is an art back-stage history experienced from a female perspective, where we have strived to dare to create colored people as whole characters. As a colored Dane, I sincerely hope the time, where colored Danes is just a footnote in the Danish history, has come to an end. It would be nice if we at least have our own chapter”. 

Screenwriter Anna Neye is best known for the satire-series “Normalerweize” (2004-2011), which she developed together with Lærke Winther. She received the Danish Dramatist’s talent award in 2007 and has since 2009 primarily been occupied as a screenwriter. Anna got the idea for EMPIRE after a trip to the Danish West Indies, where she afterwards contacted Frederikke Aspöck. 

EMPIRE is starring Anna Neye and Sara Fanta Traore in the leading roles as Anna and Petrine, while Claus Riis Østergaard plays von Scholten and Admiral Irminger is played by Jesper Groth.

It premieres in Danish cinemas on April 20.

Christopher Læssø in new Tv2 Zulu series

Christopher Læssø stars in new comedy series

A 10 year high school reunion, a crashed ferry and six former classmates trapped on an island for indefinite time.

That’s roughly the center of TV2 Zulu’s new series ‘Blå Bog For Evigt’ where Christopher Læssø plays the character ‘Theis’ - the once popular guy in school with a promising future, who finds himself ten years later still waiting for his big breakthrough as a comedian.

When the former classmates from 3.w. arrange that their 10 year reunion should be held at a tiny island, everyone is on board. But when the only ferry connecting the island to the mainland crashes in the middle of the night, six classmates are suddenly trapped on the island indefinitely.
Before they realise it, old patterns quickly rise to the surface and the six classmates suddenly stand face to face with their younger self. Instead of being the host of a joyful reunion, the island is now center stage of a showdown, where the former classmates are forced to face broken dreams, unresolved expectations, old romances and the uncertainty of the future all while the walls are slowly getting closer.

The series consists of 5 episodes of humoristic scenes, embarrassing altercations and heartfelt moments when Christopher Læssø in the company of i.a. Jesper Ole Feit Andersen, Sofie Jo Kaufmanas and Josefine Tvermoes, is forced to face the past to - perhaps - gain valuable insight of the future.

The Tv-series was created by Claes Quaade and premiers on the 5th of September on TV2 Zulu and TV2 Play. Peter Molde-Amelung as conceptualizing director and Esben Tønnesen as episode director. The series is produced by Mille Bjørke and Mastiff with Nikolaj Feifer as creative producer.

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood at Folketeatret.

It will be a production depicting humour, romance and the fight for justice, when Folketeatret this October, will open its doors to the famous fairytale set in Sherwood Forest.

The story of Robin Hood and his gang of merry men, has been told far and wide and in all kinds of productions. This didn’t make the story less popular. Nowadays, young and old, most people will know about the dealings of the Sheriff of Nottingham, of Prince John and of the deeds of Robin Hood, Brother Tuck and their friends. However, in this version, some of the characters have had their storyline widened. For most people, Maid Marian, played by Marie Bach Hansen, is known as Robin Hood’s object of affection. However, in this production, she has a story of her own. She, and other women added to the story, can match the skills and wit of any man. Still though, Maid Marian cannot help being impressed by Robin Hoods archery…

This production introduces Christopher Læssø’s Robin Hood as young and naive, but before long, an indignant fire towards social injustice rises within him and soon he can be seen doing what he does best: Stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor - spiced up, with loads of jokes and laughs along the way.

This version of Robin Hood, was written by Tony- and Olivier award winning Ken Ludwig. With shows on both Broadway and in London’s West End, his plays has become widely popular and has been shown in over 25 countries. And now, Robin Hood, will make it to a stage in Copenhagen.

Christopher Læssø is no stranger to Folketeatret, having previously starred in ‘Mød mig på Cassiopeia’.

Robin Hood will premiere at Folketeatret at October 15th 2020.
