TrustNordisk Lured 'The Shamer's Daughter'

The all-star Scandi cast features Peter Plaugborg, Jakob Oftebro, Soren Malling, Stina Ekblad and Allan Hyde (pictured).

In the run-up to Berlin’s EFM market, Scandi giant TrustNordisk has taken international sales rights to “The Shamer’s Daughter,” a high-profile fantasy/adventure film based on the first book of Lene Kaaberbol’s “The Shamer Chronicles.”

In A Better World” scribe Anders Thomas Jensen penned the adaptation, while Danish helmer Kenneth Kainz is set direct.

Lensing will kick off on Feb. 27 with an all-star Scandinavian cast (pictured), including Peter Plaugborg (“The Keeper of Lost Causes”), Jakob Oftebro (“Kon-Tiki”),  Soren Malling (“A Hijacking”), Stina Ekblad (“Love Is All You Need”) and Allan Hyde (“True Blood”).

Pic tells the tale of Dina, who has unwillingly inherited her mother’s supernatural ability and is able to look straight into the soul of other people. When her mother is wrongfully accused of horrible murders, Dina sets off to uncover the truth but she finds herself embroiled in a dangerous power struggle with her own life at risk.

“This is a unique project from one of the best authors in the fantasy/adventure genre – a bestseller, written for the screen by Anders Thomas Jensen,” said says Rikke Ennis, TrustNordisk CEO. “We look forward to the co-operation with the visionary and ambitious producers Eva Juel Hammerich and Nina Lyng from Nepenthe Film on this Scandinavian adventure film.”

Nordisk Film Distribution will distribute the pic in Spring 2015.
