The Keeper of Lost Causes: The Movie

The Danish film The Keeper of Lost Causes, based on the novel by Jussi Adler-Olsen, directed by Mikkel Norgaard and adapted to screen by Nikolaj Arcel, will open in Danish theatres October 3. No US distributor or release date yet, but check out the other countries, including the UK that will have it soon.

THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES is the first film in the upcoming franchise based on the bestselling book series about Department Q by author Jussi Adler-Olsen. TrustNordisk has already closed a large number of presales and currently THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES has been sold to more than 30 countries including key territories such as Germany, Benelux, Switzerland, Australia, UK and China.

Starring Nikolaj Lie Kaas (ANGELS & DEMONS, 2009) and Fares Fares (SAFE HOUSE, 2012 and ZERO DARK THIRTY, 2013) THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES tells the story of chief detective Carl Mørck and his assistant Assad who become involved in a five-year-old case concerning the mystery of politician Merete Lynggaard’s disappearance - a journey that takes them deep into the undercurrent of abuse and malice that lurks beneath the polished surface of Scandinavia.

THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES is directed by Mikkel Nørgaard (KLOWN, 2010) with screenplay by Nikolaj Arcel who wrote and directed A ROYAL AFFAIR (2012) and who also wrote the script for THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (2009).

Talk about suspense-I wonder how close the film makers hued to the plot.It doesn't need being made edgier. it is edgy enough as written. I hope it finds a distributor over her.
