While many are hanging out for Mads Mikkelsen’s return to the small screen with the second season of NBC’s “Hannibal,” the actor himself will soon be back on the big screen with the English territory release of the 16th-century revenge tale “Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas”.
Arnaud des Pallieres directs the 16th-century feudal France-set tale based on Heinrich von Kleist’s classic novella. Mikkelsen plays a horse dealer whose property is taken away from him on behest of a greedy local nobleman. The situation escalates, turning the dealer into a revenge-fueled desperado.
The film opens today in the UK and in March in Australia. No word on a U.S. release at the present time.
