EXCLUSIVE: LevelK has boarded world sales for Silent Heart (working title), which reunites director Bille August with his Best Intentions star Ghita Norby.
The cast will also feature Pilou Asbaek (A Hijacking), Paprika Steen, Morten Grunwald, and 2014 EFP Shooting Star Danica Curcia.
The story, written by Christian Torpe, is about a family gathering for an unusual weekend as the terminally ill matriarch (Norby) plans to commit suicide.
