Lars Mikkelsen
The biggest news of the week (and quite possibly the month) was that Sofie Gråbøl and Lars Mikkelsen will be starring in a new film written by Søren Sveistrup (creator of The Killing). The film, titled The Day Will Come, takes place in a Danish orphanage in the 1960s, with Mikkelsen playing the tyrannical headmaster and Gråbøl one of the teachers. The film is due to be released in about a year from now.
