Mads Mikkelsen will play Nazi Officer

Signs on for Holocaust drama

 

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen has signed on to star in The Nazi Officer's Wife alongside Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).

The film is adapted from Edith H Beer's Holocaust memoir of the same name, subtitled How One Woman Survived The Holocaust, and follows the author's experience as an Austrian Jew in Nazi Germany.

Mikkelsen, best known to UK viewers as blood-weeping villain Le Chiffre from Casino Royale, will play the titular officer whom Edith eventually marries.

Shooting is due to begin in Germany and Vienna later this year, with Barthélémy Grossmann directing.

Is Mads the man for the job?

      It does sound good. And I'm with Pimpernel, Mads is one of the few reasons I'll watch Clash on dvd.
