Leth, Zandvliet team for skinhead drama

13 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Project comes from Land Of Mine’s producer and writer duo.

Danish director Asger Leth (Man On A Ledge) will direct the timely, politically-minded Us-set drama White Dog, from a story by Land Of Mine writer/director Martin Zandvliet.

Nordisk’s Mikael Rieks, who also produced the likely Oscar-contender Land Of Mine, will produce. Zandvliet co-wrote the script with Anders August.

The film is described as “an eye-level portrait of two skinhead brothers at a point in their lives where their paths are pointed in very different directions.”

The team expects to shoot the film in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“The film will take place in Pittsburgh, USA, but it is just as easily a portrait of a time where populist politicians everywhere are appealing to the worst in us,” said Asger Leth, whose credits also include Ghosts Of Cite Soleil.

Meanwhile, Zandvliet is currently in pre-production in Japan on his English-language debut The Outsider starring Jared Leto.

Jared Leto To Star In Yakuza Flick 'The Outsider'

6 April 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It pays to remember that Oscar winner Jared Leto doesn't star in movies very often, and tends to be particular about the roles he takes. Prior to this summer's appearance as The Joker in "Suicide Squad," the actor's last big screen turn was in "Dallas Buyer's Club" three years ago. So it's a little surprising the actor is lining up a new movie so quickly, but clearly, it's something that has caught his attention enough to sign on. THR reports that Leto will star in the thriller "The Outsider." Penned by Andrew Baldwin ("Bastille Day"), this post-wwii movie is set in Japan and follows a jailed American soldier who is freed by his Yakuza cellmate, and must navigate the criminal underworld and repay his debt. Sounds like it has some solid potential. And as a reader reminds us, this project was initially set up as a project for Tom Hardy »
