Another round, which won the Best International Feature on Sunday, is set for an Oscar for an English-language remake with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, starring Mads Mikkelsen.
The Danish film rights, directed by Thomas Winterberg, were acquired by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davison’s Appian Way, Endeavor Content, and Brad Weston’s MacDee, working with Martin, DiCaprio reported Deadline.
The story of the Oscar-winning film revolves around four middle-aged friends who have lost interest in their teaching work. One day, they decide to experiment with drinking during the day to regain their motivation. Mikkelsen played the role of history teacher Martin in the film.
Winterberg was interested in DiCaprio’s consideration of the role of Martin, a schoolteacher, which paved the way for the deal.
Since its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2020, another round has been one of the most liked films internationally.
Winterberg dedicated the film on Sunday to his 19-year-old daughter, Ida, who died within a few days during the shooting of the film.
“We wanted to make a film that celebrates life. Four days into the impossible shooting: An accident on a highway took my daughter away. Someone stared at a cell phone, and we miss him and I love him, ”the director said, accepting the trophy.
“We shot the film two months ago and two months before she died, she was in Africa. She would just read the script and was glowing with enthusiasm. He loved it. She said that she feels like seeing it. If anyone dares to believe that he is here with us in some way, you will see him clapping and cheering with us. “
“Ida, this is a miracle that has just happened, and you are separated from this miracle.” Maybe you are pulling some strings somewhere. this one is for you.”
Another round also includes Thomas Bo Larsen, Lars Ranthe, Magnus Milang, Maria Bonevi and Suce Wold.
