Rasmus Hammerich in a supporting role in the new Department Q film ‘Boundless’

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. 

Danish director Ole Christian Madsen, credited for the HBO series “Banshee” (2013-16) and WWII drama “Flame & Citron” starring Mads Mikkelsen, has taken up the challenge of bringing Adler-Olsen’s suspenseful universe to the silver screens, working from a script by Jakob Weis.

Christian Madsen will reunite with his “Banshee” actor Ulrich Thomsen. The latter reprises the role of detective Carl Mørck, which he played in Nordisk Film Production’s previous Department Q film version, “The Marco Effect”.

“’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.

Jesper Tøffner is behind the camera and Aske Bang stars in new comedy

Jesper Tøffner is the D.O.P. on the film 'Højest Besynderlige Typer' with Brian Lykke, Rasmus Bjerg and Thit Aaberg in the leading roles, while Aske Bang lands a supporting role. 'Højest Besynderlige Typer' is Mikael Wulff's new comedy, a different feel good movie about a crazy road trip through a magical Copenhagen in the summertime.

'Højest Besynderlige Typer' is a comedy about three odd existences, who meet at a place in life, where they need each other and whatever they can get out of a friendship. They bring the best and the worst out in each other, but above all they help each other. 

Martin (Brian Lykke) has everything – he’s in his 40’s, quick in the line and is ready to propose to his beautiful girlfriend Cecilie. But then everything goes wrong. Cecilie declines!? Completely disillusioned, he gets wasted and wakes up the next day in a shared apartment. Here he concludes that everything in his life has gone wrong, that he needs to get away and start on a fresh. On the way to the airport and determent on this being the last day in his old life, he coincidently bumps into his old friend Knud (Rasmus Bjerg) and Freja (Thit Aaberg) – a young girl from the shared apartment. This unusual threesome makes a strange companion on a trip that will turn out to be that they have more in common than they have ever thought. 

Mikael Wulff says about the movie: “I have in most of my adult life worked and been surrounded by people who excels in using humor and language to their advantage. I am myself one of those disarmament people, but I have discovered that a part of this virtuosity also contains another agenda than to entertain – to push people away, suppress the truth and the difficult. This I where the noble art of irony is cultivated. 'Højest Besynderlige Typer' about three linguistically well-versed people – two of my generation and one from a younger and new generation – all of them has been abandoned and carries a deep pain. The movie reflects time and space, a day and a half in a magical summer I Copenhagen full of hope and healing”. 

New Creations is producing while SF Studios distributes. The movies is set to premiere in Danish theatres in 2023.

‘Medieval’ – Cinematography by Jesper Tøffner

Jesper Tøffner is the Director of Photography on the historical epic 'Medieval', starring Ben Foster, Michael Caine and Danish Roland Møller and many more. The world premiere of 'Medieval' will take place today on September 5th in Prague.

Inspired by the true story of Jan Žižka, one of greatest warriors in history. After the death of its reigning emperor, the Holy Roman Empire is plummeting into chaos while feuding brothers King Wenceslas of Czech and King Sigismund of Hungary battle for control of the empty throne. Daring and righteous mercenary leader Jan Žižka (Ben Foster) is hired by Lord Boresh (Michael Caine) to kidnap the powerful Lord Rosenberg's (Til Schweiger) fiancée, Lady Katherine (Sophie Lowe), to prevent Rosenberg's rise to power alongside the corrupt King Sigismund. As Katherine becomes caught in a dangerous political game between the monarchs, Jan falls in love with her strong spirit and dedication to saving the people. In a brave attempt to liberate her, he fights back with a rebel army to battle the corruption, greed, and betrayal rampant amongst those clawing for power. Jan now realizes that the fate of the Empire will be decided by his love for Lady Katherine and that his fate doesn’t lie in the hands of Kings, but in the hands of his own people.

“Jan Žižka is a story about the birth of a warlord, and I think people will be surprised by the way it is conceived. The story plays out in 1402 during Žižka’s youth before the Hussite Wars. It has everything one needs to know about that time period to understand it. The film also features plenty of fighting, but above all a very strong story that takes you on a ride to the very end.” says the director Petr Jákl.
