Oscar Winning Film ‘Another Round’ To Get Hollywood Remake.
- Posted On:April 26, 2021
The Danish dramedy 'Another Round’, about four friends who take part in an epic drinking binge, is to be remade by Hollywood and adapted to an English-Language film. Leonardo DiCaprio is being eyed for the leading role which originally starred Mads Mikkelsen. There is no formal deal set in place yet but Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, has acquired the rights after some bidding work that involved Jake Gyllenhaal’s production company, Nine Stories, as well as Elizabeth Banks.
Thomas Vinterberg, who received an Oscar nomination for directing the Danish film, will serve as executive producer of the remake, along with Sisse Graym Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing. Although Thomas Vinterberg wrote ‘Another Round’ with Tobias Lindholm, they will not be writing the remake.
Endeavor Content and Makeready are financing the English-language movie.
‘Another Round’ centers on four friends who consume booze on a daily basis to test a theory that maintaining a certain blood alcohol content level inspires creativity and affects their daily lives.
During Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony, Thomas Vinterberg gave an extremely emotional speech which paid tribute to his 19-year-old daughter, who was killed by a reckless driver four days into filming.
Thomas Vinterberg said in his speech “We wanted to make a film that celebrates life,”. He continued to say “We ended up making this movie for her, it’s her monument.” Tearfully he continued with “You’re part of this miracle. Maybe you’ve been pulling some strings somewhere.”
We look forward to hearing further news on the remake.
