Danish Filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg Will Plunge Into The Deep Blue For Submarine Thriller Kursk

22 January 2016 9:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Revered Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg has been recruited to helm upcoming submarine thriller Kursk for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, according to Deadline.

Based on Robert Moore’s acclaimed book A Time To Die: The Kursk Disaster, Vinterberg’s next creative venture will send the director back to the year 2000, where the titular Russian sub sank to the depths of the Barents Sea after a disastrous explosion. In Moore’s insightful account of the tragic accident, the decorated journalist traces the disaster back to a dummy warhead that exploded, killing over 100 crew members and leaving only 23 alive. From what we understand, Vinterberg’s adaptation will double down on the survival tale of those survivors.

Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot) is working on adapting Moore’s non-fiction book to the big screen, with the next step in the creative process involving sending the feelers out for potential cast members. Deadline »

Thomas Vinterberg to Direct ‘Kursk’ Submarine Movie for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp

21 January 2016 7:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp has hired Danish director Thomas Vinterberg to direct its “Kursk” movie based on the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster, in which 118 Russians perished.

EuropaCorp had hired Danish director Martin Zandvliet in August to direct “Kursk” from a script by “Saving Private Ryan” screenwriter Robert Rodat, based on Robert Moore’s book “A Time to Die.” Zandvliet is no longer attached.

The Kursk sunk during a Russian naval exercise in the Barents Sea after explosions within the submarine. The Russian government refused help from foreign governments for five days before agreeing to aid from the British and Norwegian governments.

The Russian Navy initially asserted that the sinking had been caused by a collision with another vessel but the government eventually admitted that the cause was a torpedo explosion in the submarine.

EuropaCorp is developing “Valerian” with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne starring. Its slate includes “Shut In,” starring Naomi Watts, »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #45. Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune

10 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Commune

Director: Thomas Vinterberg

Writers: Tobias Lindholm, Thomas Vinterberg

With a career resurgence following his 2012 The Hunt (earning Mads Mikkelsen a Best Actor Award at Cannes as well as snagging an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film), Dogme Godfather Thomas Vinterberg mounted a handsome adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd, which enjoyed decent critical reception following a release from Fox Searchlight. His latest, The Commune, co-written by director Tobias Lindholm (whose excellent new feature, A War was Denmark’s official Oscar entry this year), follows a 1970s academic couple who join a commune in Hellrup with their daughter. But things get interesting when the patriarch’s girlfriend also moves in. Though this sounds an awful lot like Swedish auteur Lukas Moodysson’s 2000 feature Together, we’re excited to see Vinterberg’s return with Lindholm (who also scripted Submarino and The Hunt) in a film »
