Danish org pumps coin to local pix

Producer Grasten signs Bostrup to helm 'Anja'

COPENHAGEN — The Danish Film Institute is contributing coin to several locally produced pics. “Anja After Victor,” “Askepop — The Movie,” “The Green Butchers” and “The Hire Contract” will each receive $700,000.

Danish producer Regner Grasten has signed Danish director Charlotte Sachs Bostrup to helm “Anja After Victor” (the third installment of the Anja and Victor franchise) and co-direct “Askepop — The Movie,” the film version of the musical Bostrup staged at Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens.

Scripted by Grasten, “Askepop,” which is set against the backdrop of 1950s rock ‘n’ roll, follows a girl who scores her dream prince, assisted by a little magic.

Writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen will start principal photography next month on “The Green Butchers,” for M&M Prods. Starring Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Lie Kaas, the comedy about two brothers who open a butcher’s shop is co-financed by Danish pubcaster TV2/Danmark.

Danish producer Steen Herdel returns to feature film producing with Peter Ringgaard’s “The Hire Contract,” a family comedy scripted by Ringgaard and John Bernstein. Lensing on the Waterfront production starring Jesper Klein and Peter Gantzler will begin Aug. 5.
