Brainstorm Media Picks Up U.S. Rights To Mads Matthiesen’s ‘The Model’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Brainstorm Media has acquired U.S. rights to “The Model,” a Paris-set thriller directed by Mads Matthiesen. Repped in international markets by TrustNordisk, “The Model” stars “Vikings” actor Marco Ilsø, Ed Skrein (“Deadpool”) and fashion model Maria Palm.

The film centers on a young Danish model who struggles to make it in the Parisian fashion industry. Her passion for a young photographer (Skrein) turns into an obsession and propels her downfall.

Matthiesen’s 2012 debut feature, “Teddy Bear,” took a directing award at the Sundance Film Festival.

The acquisition marks the second deal made between Brainstorm and TrustNordisk following “The 11th Hour.”

“The Model” is produced by Jonas Bagger for Zentropa Entertainment with exec producers Louise Vesth and Marie Gade Denessen.

“The Model” has already sold to Latin America (California Films), China (HGC Entertainment), Russia CIS (Voxell Media), France (AB Groupe), Poland (Kino Swiat), Korea (Scene & Sound), Bulgaria (Pro Films) and the Middle East (Gulf Film).
