Studiocanal picks up Danish thriller DARKLAND for UK release

The Danish action thriller Darkland (Underverden or ‘The Under World’) has been picked up by Studiocanal for a UK release.

The deal was struck with the sales agent TrustNordisk at the recent American Film Market. TrustNordisk also sold the film to Japan, China and Turkey.

Darkland, directed by Fenar Ahmad, stars Dar Salim (A Hijacking), Stine Fischer Christensen (Under the Pyramid), Roland Møller (Land of Mine), and Dulfi Al-Jabouri (A War). The film follows a successful surgeon (Salim), whose younger brother is murdered. When the police turn out to be unhelpful, he is forced to take matters into his own hands and face the criminal gangs of Copenhagen by himself.

The film will also be released throughout the Nordic countries, with Nordic distribution handled by Scanbox Entertainment.
