The well-received Toronto and Venice entry has sold to UK (Arrow Films), France (Ad Vitam) and Turkey (Calinos Entertainment) and there are ongoing negotiations in a number of territories.

Tom Stewart, head of acquisitions at Arrow Films said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing this exceptional piece of film-making to both the UK and Ireland shores in 2013 and to be again collaborating with our friends at Trustnordisk and of course look forward to work closely with Tobias who has delivered such a strong and authentic powerful story.”

Previously announced deals include Benelux (A-film) and Korea (Atnine Film).

Rikke Ennis, CEO of TrustNordisk added: “We could not have hoped for a better start for A Hijacking. Not only has the reviews been overwhelming, but the film clearly also has a wide distribution potential internationally. Tobias Lindholm delivers a confident and impressive film and I have no doubt that he is capable of going all the way with his future projects.”

Pilou Asbæk, Søren Malling and Dar Salim star in the thriller about a pirate hijacking. Tomas Radoor and René Ezra produce for Nordisk Film with support from The Danish Film Institute, Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) and Nordic Film and TV Fund.
