A new Danish thriller is set to start production next month, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Birgitte Hjort Sorensen playing the lead characters. Coster-Waldau is known for his work in Game of Thrones, and Sorensen is known for her leading role in Borgen.

Coster-Waldau will play Michael, a highly gifted explosives expert who, along with a group of Serbian criminals, has stolen 60 million kroner. Looking for a quick escape, he goes into the witness protection program, where he must stay in a hotel. He also asks for three things in order to get his testimony: that PET brings him a woman named Camilla (placed by Birgitte Hjort Sorensen), who he brought a certain box from a storage warehouse, and that he may receive takeaway butter chicken twice from a restaurant in Valby.

The script is written by Jens Dahl, who will also direct. It is produced by Profile Pictures with a budget of 2.9 million kroner. The film will premiere on the 27th of October.
