Ole Bornedal to direct ‘Death’

Dane taking helm of indie thriller

Danish director Ole Bornedal (“Nighwatch”) will direct indie thriller “Death of a Hostess” for James D. Stern’s Endgame Entertainment, Taka Ichise’s Ozla Pictures and XYZ Films.

Stern and Ichise will produce along with XYZ Films’ Aram Tertzakian. Endgame’s Doug Hansen, Ozla’s Erin Eggers, and XYZ’s Nate Bolotin and Nick Spicer are exec producing. Ozla’s Ben Shiffrin will co-produce.

Project was inspired by a Time magazine article by Evan Alan Wright and focuses on a young woman who enters the dangerous underbelly of Japanese nightclubs in order to find her missing sister.

Bornedal wrote and directed last year’s Danish thriller “Deliver Us From Evil.” He helmed the original “Nightwatch” in 1994 and the English language remake, starring Nick Nolte, Ewan McGregor and Patricia Arquette.

Endgame’s recent credits include “An Education” and “Every Little Step.” Ozla’s recent U.S. releases include New Regency’s “Shutter” and “Grudge 2.” XYZ’s production slate includes a heist film with Darren Aronofsky and crime thriller about John DeLorean with Alex Holmes (“House of Saddam”).
