Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to star in Best International Film Oscar winner ‘Another Round,’ starring Mads Mikkelsen.
In the film,
“Another Round” centers on four friends who consume booze on a daily basis to test a theory that maintaining a certain blood alcohol content level inspires creativity and affects their daily lives.”
Now the film is getting an English-language remake. DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way acquired rights following a bidding war that reportedly involved Jake Gyllenhaal’s production company Nine Stories, as well as Elizabeth Banks.
Thomas Vinterberg, who landed a surprise Oscar nomination for directing the Danish film, will executive produce the remake, along with Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing. Vinterberg also co-wrote Another Round with Tobias Lindholm, but Lindholm will not be involved with the remake.
During the Oscar ceremony, Vinterberg paid tribute to his 19-year-old daughter, who lost her life as filming began on Another Round, which she had a role in. Venterberg said:
“We wanted to make a film that celebrates life,”
“We ended up making this movie for her, it’s her monument.” He added, “You’re part of this miracle. Maybe you’ve been pulling some strings somewhere.”
Deadline Hollywood first reported the news of “Another Round’s” English-language remake.
