Berlin: TrustNordisk Inks Deals On ‘The Model,’ ‘Magnus,’ ‘Pyromaniac’

BERLIN — TrustNordisk has closed raft of deals across its slate, including “The Model,””Magnus” and “Pyromaniac.”

“The Model,” directed by Sundance-winning director Mads Matthiesen, stars Maria Palm as a young model struggling to make it in the Parisian fashion industry. Her passion for a young photographer (Ed Skrein) turns into an obsession and propels her downfall.

Pic sold to Latin America (California Films), China (HGC Entertainment), Russia CIS (Voxell Media), Hungary (Vertigo Media), Turkey (Ozen Film), Estonia (Estin Film), Lithuania (Incognito Film) and Former Yugoslavia (2i Film d.o.o.) with more territories currently in negotiation.
Previous sales include France (AB Groupe), Poland (Kino Swiat), Korea (Scene & Sound), Bulgaria (Pro Films) and Middle East (Gulf Film).

“Magnus” turns on the life of chess player Magnus Carlsen, who went from being bullied by his classmates to becoming World Chess Champion. It got sold to both Germany and Austria (NFP), Hong Kong (EDKO films Ltd.), former Yugoslavia (Discovery Film) and Benelux (September Film Rights).

“The high level of interest from buyers confirms that we have come to Berlin with a strong and versatile selection of films. The market is only half way through and we are looking forward to closing even more deals in the days to come” says CEO Rikke Ennis.

Meanwhile, “Pyromaniac,” directed by Norwegian up-and-comer Erik Skjoldbjærg (“Insomnia”) and based on Gaute Heivoll’s “Before I Burn,” sold to Korea (Sidus FNH Corporation), former Yugoslavia (Cinemania Group) and Turkey (Sinema TV Yay. VE PROD) with more territories currently in negotiation.
