‘Paper Trail’ grows with SKE

Danish director Ole Madsen to helm thriller

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment will finance and produce the thriller “Paper Trail,” with Danish director Ole Christian Madsen set to helm.

Madsen most recently directed the comedy “Superclasico,” Denmark’s official entry for this year’s Academy Awards foreign-language competition, and also directed “Flame and Citron” and “Prague.” “Paper Trail” will mark Madsen’s first U.S. production and his first English-language film.

Sidney Kimmel will produce with Mark Williams of Zero Gravity Management and SKE prexy of production Matt Berenson. SKE president Jim Tauber and Code Entertainment’s Rich Freeman exec produce.

Screenplay by Louis Rosenberg and Joe Rosenbaum centers on an ambitious assistant editor for a top publisher who finds a manuscript from prison claiming to tell the true story behind a major unsolved diamond heist, which he sees as his ticket to the top. He and his girlfriend soon find themselves pawns in a criminal mastermind’s much larger, more dangerous game.

The filmmakers are targeting a summer start and are currently out to talent.

SKE recently wrapped production of “The Place Beyond the Pines,” starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper and directed by Derek Cinefrance. It produced “One for the Money,” starring Katherine Heigl, in association with Lakeshore Entertainment, with Lionsgate releasing in Janaury.

Madsen is repped by CAA and Code Management. Rosenberg and Rosenbaum are repped by Paradigm and Zero Gravity Management.
