The Danish sales agency TrustNordisk has picked up the upcoming film Three Things for international sales.
Directed by Jens Dahl, Three Things (original title: 3 ting) is directed by Jens Dahl and centres in and around a hotel where the police are negotiating the terms of a witness protection deal with the prime suspect of a big money deposit robbery and an expert on explosives, Mikael. In order to agree to the deal, Mikael demands three things from the police: that his former girlfriend is brought to him, that the police bring the contents of a box he has stored, and that he is served butter chicken from his favourite restaurant. The police, under heavy time pressure to get him to witness the following day, agree. The film stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen.
Jens Dahl is known for his scriptwriting workPusher(1996) as well as several Scandinavian television series including Summer (2008), Lulu and Leon (2010) and Norskov (2015). Three Things is his feature debut.
3 THINGS is produced by Caroline Schlüter Bingestam and Jacob Jarek for Profile Picture and executively produced by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, with support from Danish Film Institute and TV2 Danmark.
The film is distributed by Scanbox Entertainment in Scandinavia.
TrustNordisk will initiate pre-sales during Berlin International Film Festival in February.
