With Scandinavian auteur-driven genre films gaining traction overseas, Profile Pictures, a fairly young Copenhagen-based shingle, is emerging as one of the most interesting Scandinavian players.
The banner, founded by Jacob Jarek, Ditte Milsted and Thor Sigurjonsson in late 2011, powers up a strong slate of homegrown genre movies including Norwegian director Patrik Syversen’s horror-comedy “Party Animal” sold by L.A.-based Xyz, and “The Undertaker,” which will topline local A-list star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”), from Denmark’s celebrated director Jannik Johansen.
Jarek describes “The Undertaker” as a thriller in the vein of “History of Violence” turning on an ex-biker who faces his violent past. “Party Animal” centers on a bachelor party that turns bloody when the groom transforms into a werewolf.
Jarek recently line-produced Jonas Arnby’s werewolf coming-of-age tale “When Animals Dream,” which is repped by Gaumont, and co-produced Nicolas Winding Refn’s Cannes-preem “Only God Forgives” starring Ryan Gosling. »
