Danish sales outfit LevelK has closed multiple pre-sales in Europe for Men and Chicken, the new black comedy from prolific screenwriter and director Anders Thomas Jensen (Adam’s Apples) featuring Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen.
LevelK, which picked up the title in Toronto and kicked off sales at AFM, closed with Imagine for Benelux, Film Europe for the Czech Republic and Slovakia and with Vertigo for Hungary.
Mikkelsen stars alongside David Dencik (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) in Men and Chicken as two outcast brothers who reunite with their relatives only to find out a cruel truth about themselves and their families.
Men and Chicken will be Jensen’s fourth feature film as a director, following on Flickering Lights, The Green Butchers and Adams Apples, but the Dane is as well known as a screenwriter of such projects as Susanne Bier‘s Oscar-winner In a Better World and the recent A Second Chance, and Kristian Levring‘s dark Western The Salvation, which also stars Mikkelsen, and which Universal Pictures International picked up in Toronto for multiple international territories.
