Lars Brygmann and Katrine Greis-Rosenthal have joined the cast of Vinterberg’s upcoming drama Kursk starring Matthias Schoenaerts.
Kursk is based on Robert Moore’s book A Time to Die, about the true story of the Kursk submarine disaster in 2000 where twenty-three sailors survived the crash and desperately waited for help to arrive while their oxygen ran out minute-by-minute.
The principal cast also include Colin Firth, Léa Seydoux, Peter Simonischek, Max Von Sydow, Matthias Schweighöfer, Bjarne Henriksen and Peter Plaugborg among others. The filming of the big-screen drama has taken place on locations in Rumania, Belgium and France. It is expected to premiere in 2018.
