Madsen hits Berlin with pair of films
'Superclasico,' 'Eik' looking for financingBERLIN -- Danish director Ole Christian Madsen, whose last feature, "Flame & Citron," was the biggest Danish boxoffice hit in decades, has arrived in Berlin with his two follow-up projects.
Madsen and producers Nimbus are looking to nail down financing for the comedy "Superclasico" and the beatnik biopic "Eik." The Nimbus title "Submarino," from director Thomas Vinterberg, bows in competition in Berlin today.
"Eik" is a period biopic on '60s beatnik poet Eik Skaloe, described by some as the Danish Jim Morrison. Shooting is planned for 2011.
The Match Factory, which sold "Flame & Citron" to more than 50 territories, will be handling world sales on both titles.
