Mads Mikkelsen Will Brave the Elements in Survival Thriller ‘Arctic’

If Mads is starring, my ass is in the seat.

Deadline is reporting today that Mads Mikkelsen, the definitive Hannibal Lecter (in my eyes), has just been cast as the lead in Arctic, an upcoming survival thriller that will be directed by Joe Penna. The Armory Films, Union Entertainment Group, and Pegasus Pictures film, penned by Penna and Ryan Morrison, is now in production.

Mikkelsen will play 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.”

“Hannibal” EP Martha De Laurentiis will exec produce. XYZ Films will sell the film at Cannes.

    Mads Mikkelsen is awesome in everything he does. If you haven’t seen Valhalla Rising, do it now. It’s from Refn so it’s tough to follow and doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but Mads Mikkelsen is amazing in it.

    And I just like saying Mads Mikkelsen…..

    Can’t wait for this one to come out….will see it once it does…

  • J Jett

    Mads can do no wrong. he’s easily one of the best actors ever.

  • Emma Rollinson

    The first sentence of an article has never described me so perfectly.

    • Tetra-Gramaton-Cleric

      Yep, one of the very few actors who will compel me to watch the film regardless of the genre.

      Tom Hardy is on that list as well.
