Backup Studio boards De Palma‘s Domino with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Christina Hendricks



New Hollywood legend Brian De Palma (Mission: Impossible, Scarface, The Untouchables) will direct the long awaited script DOMINO penned by Norwegian Petter Skavland (Kon-Tiki, Sophie’s World) and will start shooting this summer.

As terrorist attacks target Europe, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones, Oblivion, The Other Woman) is a Danish cop that goes rogue to follow a suspect who killed his partner in Copenhagen. Joined by fellow police officer Christina Hendricks (Drive, The Neon Demon, Mad Men) on a journey throughout Europe, they do not know that their suspect is on the trail of the ISIS cell behind the attacks, working for a CIA operative.

The film is produced by Michel Schønnemann for Schønne Film in Denmark and coproduced by Antonio Perez Perez' Maestranza in Spain and Jaqueline de Gooeij for Zilvermeer in Belgium. Backup is wrapping the financing the film.

Michel Schønnemann: "I have been a huge fan of Brian De Palma ever since I saw “Scarface” in 1983. So it is with grade pride that I look forward to produce DOMINO, a script I have developed together with screenwriter Petter Skavlan. From the start our ambitions have been to create a suspense filled thriller in the line of such classics as “French Connection”; having Brian De Palma on board only heightens this ambition. We look forward to bring this film to the audiences in 2018."

IM Global will launch international sales on the film in Cannes. ICM will represent the film for the US.
