For a new period picture, actor Mads Mikkelsen will reunite with director Nikolaj Arcel. The pair previously collaborated on the critically praised 2012 film “A Royal Affair,” which also starred Alicia Vikander.

The new film, provisionally named “King’s Land,” is based on the Danish best-selling novel “The Captain And Ann Barbara,” which will be released in 2020. According to Deadline, Arcel collaborated on the screenplay with filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen.

The narrative takes place in the mid-1700s, when Danish King Fredirik V decreed that the untamed heaths of Jutland should be tamed, cultivated, and colonised in order to spread civilization and produce fresh taxes for the royal dynasty.

The plot synopsis read, “However, no one dared to follow the King’s decree. The heath meant certain death – a godforsaken place haunted by ravenous wolves, highwaymen, and a brutal and unforgiving nature.”

Added, “But in the late summer of 1755, a lone soldier by the name of Ludvig Kahlen rode into the heath in a stubborn pursuit of a lifelong dream, determined to reach his goal: The heath would either bring him the wealth and honour he had long seeked… or get the better of him.”

On September 5, the film will begin filming in Denmark, Germany, and the Czech Republic.

As Mikkelsen stated, “Nikolaj Arcel and I had a magnificent collaboration during ‘A Royal Affair’, and I am beyond excited to be working with him once again. He has an awe-inspiring vision for the film, and he and Anders Thomas have penned an amazing script. Its brutality and tenderness deeply moved me when I first read it.”

Added, “It’s an important and fascinating chapter in Danish history about to be adapted for the screen and carrying topics still relevant to this very day. Besides, it is a thrilling story and quite an adventure.”

“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” a Warner Bros. film, featured the Danish actor most recently. He’ll next be seen in the fifth “Indiana Jones” film, which will be directed by Harrison Ford.
