Mads Mikkelsen To Go To The “Arctic”

“Hannibal” and “Doctor Strange” star Mads Mikkelsen is set to star in Joe Penna’s survival thriller “Arctic” for Armory Films, Union Entertainment Group and Pegasus Pictures.

Mikkelsen plays a man stranded in the Arctic, who is finally about to receive his long-awaited rescue. However, after a tragic accident, his opportunity is lost and he must then decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his camp or embark on a deadly trek through the unknown for potential salvation.

Chris Lemol, Tim Zajaros and Noah C Haeussner will produce while Martha De Laurentiis, Einar Thorsteinsson and Cassian Elwes will executive produce. Production is currently underway with the project being shot in the Icelandic Mountains, far from civilization, during one of its coldest winters.
