MK2 Films Reteams With Joachim Trier In New Movie – Variety

by Stewart Cole

Mk2 Films is set to reunite with Joachim Trier after The Worst Person in the World, the Norwegian helmer’s award-winning and Oscar-nominated romantic comedy at Cannes, which was also a worldwide box office hit.

The Paris-based company will handle international sales and co-produce alongside Juliette Schrameck at Agat Films, who also co-produced “The Worst Person in the World,” along with Nathanaël Karmitz and Elisha Karmitz for MK Production . Mk2 Films, Schrameck and the Karmitz brothers join producers Maria Ekerhovd at Mer Film and Andrea Berentsen Ottmar at Eye Eye Pictures.

Trier is writing his untitled sixth feature with longtime collaborator Eskil Vogt, with whom he shared an Oscar nomination for best screenplay. “It’s an ambitious yet playful family drama. An intimate, moving and often funny film about family, memory and how we must rewrite the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive,” said the couple.

The project recently received its highest production funding ever ($1.9 million) from the Norwegian Film Institute.

“The Worst Person in The World” competed at Cannes, where it was acquired by Neon for domestic rights and earned its star Renate Reinsve a best actress award. The film completed Trier’s Oslo Trilogy, which began with “Reprise” in 2006 and continued with “Oslo, August 31” in 2011.

Mk2 Films is in Cannes with several films in different sections, including Justine Triet’s ‘Anatomy of a Fall’ playing in competition.

The company has also started sales on “Les Balconettes,” a fantasy horror film directed by Noemie Merlant (“Tár”) and co-written by Celine Sciamma, who directed Merlant on “Portrait of a Lady on Fire.”
