Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen, who has scripted 49 films, is readying his fourth feature, Men & Chicken, almost 10 years after his last drama-thriller-comedy, Adam’s Apples (2005). The project has been supported with €1.1 million from the Danish Film Institute, and backed by Danish pubcaster DR, Disney Denmark and Danish regional film centre, FilmFyn.

Thomas Jensen has co-written the last three films by Danish director Susanne Bier, including her In a Better World [+] (2010), which won the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Feature, the romantic comedy Love Is All You Need [+] (2012) – the Pierce Brosnan-Trine Dyrholm starrer which is nominated for the European Film Award as Best Comedy – and her new film, A Second Chance, currently shooting on the island of Funen until January 16.

Described as a black comedy about two outcast brothers, who reunite with their relatives to learn a cruel truth about themselves and their family, Men & Chicken will have Mads Mikkelsen in the lead. As with Thomas Jensen’s Flickering Lights (2000), The Green Butchers (2003) and Adam’s Apples, the film will be produced by Tivi and Kim Magnusson, for M&M Productions. The local premiere is scheduled for 2015.
