Scandinavian shingle LevelK has acquired international sales rights to Anders Thomas Jensen’s black-humor-laced comedy “Men & Chicken,” starring Mads Mikkelsen.

“Men & Chicken” turns on two outcast brothers — played by Mikkelsen and David Dencik — who don’t get along but reunite with their relatives following the death of their father when they find out they were adopted.

LevelK, which was founded by former TrustNordisk exec Tine Klint and has offices in Copenhagen and New York, will start selling the movie at Toronto.

Pic is produced by Tivi Magnusson and Kim Magnusson for M&M Prods., and co-produced with Germany’s Studio Babelsberg and DCM.

“It was a natural choice for us to go with LevelK since Tine and her team have experience handling Anders Thomas Jensen’s films in their previous jobs,” said producer Kim Magnusson, CEO of M&M Prods.

Jensen co-penned Susanne Bier’s Oscar-winning “In a Better World,” among other Bier movies, and recently co-wrote Cannes-preeming “The Salvation,” a Western with Mikkelsen. His other credits include “After the Wedding” and “Brothers.”
