Mads Mikkelsen is finalizing a deal to star in the next effort from celebrated filmmaker Alexander Payne, a Netflix original film which does not year have a title.
The story is said to be a father/daughter story about a Danish journalist who goes on a road-trip with his teenage daughter across the United States as he writes a story for a newspaper.
Filming will begin shooting next month in Sweden, Denmark and the U.S. from a script by Erlend Loe (“Nord”). Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa and Lizette Jonjic will produce the film which is targeting a Fall 2020 release.
The Netflix project is Payne’s immediate next film, with the dark satirical comedy “The Menu,” which has Emma Stone and Ralph Fiennes circling to star, also in development.
