The entire cast of Nikolaj Arcel’s next epic historical drama “The Bastard” (formerly known as “King’s Land”) has been revealed by Zentropa Entertainments. Shooting for the movie has recently begun.
In addition to Mads Mikkelsen and Amanda Collin from “Raised by Wolves,” Simon Bennebjerg from “Borgen” will play Frederik de Schinkel, a local landowner and the antagonist of Mads Mikkelsen’s character Ludvig Kahlen in the film.
Edel Helene, the cousin of Frederik de Schinkel, will be played by Norwegian actress Kristine Kujath Thorp (“Ninjababy,” “Sick of Myself”), who will be caught up in a lethal game of power and love between Shinkel and Kahlen.
The role of pastor Anton Eklund, Kahlen’s unusual ally, will be played by Gustav Lindh, a Riders of Justice actor and European Shooting Star winner.
Other actors in the cast include Felix Kramer in “Dark,” Jakob Lohmann in “Riders of Justice,” Morten Hee Andersen in “Ride Upon the Storm,” Magnus Krepper in “Queen of Hearts,” and others.

The $8 million budget feature, which is rumored to be Zentropa’s biggest in years, has already pre-sold to the United States (Magnolia Pictures), Germany (PLAION PICTURES), France (The Jokers Films), Benelux (September Films), and Hungary (Vertigo Media).
The new film, “Riders of Justice,” was co-written by Arcel and critically acclaimed Danish screenwriter and director Anders Thomas Jensen. It is based on the 2020 Danish bestseller “Kaptajnen og Ann Barbara” (The Captain and Ann Barbara). Louise Vesth produced the show for Zentropa Entertainments.
The film version of Arcel will be a suspenseful historical thriller about the invasion of the Danish heath. In order to extend civilization and create additional taxes for the royal family, Danish King Frederik V decreed that the wild heath of Jutland should be domesticated, cultivated, and colonised in the middle of the eighteenth century.
