Miso sends Lindholm to ‘School’

Danish producers seek partners for coming-of-age tale

Danish filmmaker Tobias Lindholm is set to helm “The Boarding School,” a coming-of-age drama-thriller produced by Scandinavia’s Miso Film.

Penned by Lindholm, the $2.6 million pic turns on a 15-year-old during his first year at an elite boarding school.

Lindholm co-penned the critically acclaimed “Submarino” with director Thomas Vinterberg, and his feature debut as a helmer, “R,” is playing in competition at Les Arcs European Film Festival. Pic, which he co-helmed with Michael Noer, won the Dragon Award for Nordic film at the Goteborg Film Festival.

Miso Film producers Caroline Blanco and Christian Potalivo, who are pitching “The Boarding School” at Les Arcs Festival’s Co-production Village, said they are in advanced negotiations with Danish broadcaster DR and the Danish Film Institute for production coin.

Producers are looking for a minority co-producer. Script will be finalized in October, and lensing will kick off in fall 2012 with an international cast of emerging thesps.

“The Boarding School” is one of the six films developed as part of the Film Forum initiative.

Supported by the Danish Film Institute, DR and TV2, Film Forum was created by Miso to produce six original projects from emerging Danish scribes. Film Forum’s other buzz title is Jeppe Gjervig Gram’s “Gangster,” a $2.6 million thriller centering on a seemingly ordinary family man who’s actually a wanted criminal.

The producers are looking for a director for the project and are in talks with potential French and Irish partners, who would be the majority co-producers.

Film Forum also features Maren Louise Kaehne’s off-beat romance “Long Story Short,” Maja Jul Larsen’s “Construction,” Jannik Tai Mosholt’s toon “The Wish” and Anna Bro’s black comedy “Unhealthy to the Core.”

Miso, whose past credits include thriller “The Candidate” and WWII drama “Max Manus,” is also developing crime drama series “Those Who Kill.”
