Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) is set to star in Riders of Justice, a modern fable written and directed by Anders Thomas Jensen (Men & Chicken) about solidarity, the randomness of the universe and the meaning of life.
The story follows military man Markus (Mads Mikkelsen) who returns home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. Then, maths geek Otto shows up with his two eccentric colleagues and reveals that he was also a passenger on the wrecked train.
Otto (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is convinced that this was no accident and, as the evidence mounts up, it becomes clear to Markus that his wife might have been collateral damage in a carefully orchestrated assassination.
Riders of Justice (Retfærdighedens ryttere) began filming this week and is slated for a Danish theatrical release on 25th December 2020.
