TrustNordisk sells Norwegian action-drama to distributor for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The Last King

Koch Media has acquired The Last King for Germany, Austria and Switzerland from TrustNordisk.

The deal was negotiated between Susan Wendt, head of sales at TrustNordisk, and Silke Wilfinger, director of acquistion and TV sales at Koch Media GmbH.

Nils Gaup’s action-drama is set in the Middle Ages and centres on two Norwegian warriors who escape across the mountains in order to bring the last remaining heir to the throne to safety. The film stars Jakob Oftebro, Kristofer Hivju, Thorbjørn Harr and Pål Sverre Hagen.

“We are glad to continue working together with TrustNordisk on The Last King. We feel this title will become another strong adventure movie in the vain of Arn, Valhalla Rising and Flukt,” commented Wilfinger.

Wendt added: “We are extremely happy to work with Koch Media again. We feel that they are the perfect home for The Last King and we are sure that they will do a tremendous job.”

The Last King is produced by Stein B. Kvae and Finn Gjerdrum for Paradox Film 3 AS, co-produced by Nordisk Film, Newgrange Pictures Ltd and Proton Cinema+Theatre, with support from Norwegian Film Institute, Irish Film Board and Eurimages.

Domestic release is set for early 2016.
