Scandinavian sales agent LevelK has teamed up with M&M Productions on writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen’s black comedy Men and Chicken, which stars Mads Mikkelsen.

LevelK will start shopping Men and Chicken to buyers in Toronto after grabbing the international sales rights.

The comedy about two outcast brothers who reunite with their family after their father's death stars Mikkelsen and Nikolai Lie Kaas.

The ensemble cast includes Nicolas Bro, Soren Malling and David Dencik.

LevelK handled earlier Jensen movies like Flickering Lights and The Green Butchers.

The director also earned a 1999 Oscar for his short film Election Night, and co-wrote the script for Susanne Bier’s Oscar-winning film In a Better World.

Men and Chicken is produced by Tivi Magnusson and Kim Magnusson for M&M Productions, and co-produced with Studio Babelsberg and DCM.
