ANOTHER ROUND is the Oscars 2021 winner for International Feature Film! Congratulations to director Thomas Vinterberg on their Oscar win. This was the thirteenth nomination for Denmark with ANOTHER ROUND. During their speech, Vinterberg thanked his screenwriter and Mads Mikkelsen for giving "his finest."
Fresh off its Oscar win for best international feature film, “Another Round” is getting the Hollywood treatment. The Danish dramedy about four friends who engage in an epic drinking binge will be remade in English. Leonardo DiCaprio is being eyed to star in the film in the role originated by Mads Mikkelsen, but there’s no formal deal in place. DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way acquired rights following a bidding war that reportedly involved Jake Gyllenhaal’s production company Nine Stories, as well as Elizabeth Banks. Thomas Vinterberg, who landed a surprise Oscar nomination for directing the Danish film, will executive produce the remake, along with Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing. Vinterberg also co-wrote “Another Round” with Tobias Lindholm. However, he won’t be directing or writing the upcoming version.
