From the 2021 Rotterdam Film Festival to Hollywood! Magnet Releasing has bought the US rights to Riders of Justice written and directed by Anders Thomas Jensen. Mads Mikkelsen leads the cast of the action thriller about revenge, loss and connection.
Riders of Justice has Markus (Mads Mikkelsen) return home from deployment to take care of his daughter after his wife dies in a train accident and after speaking Otto (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) the data analyst, Lennart (Lars Brygmann) and Emmenthaler (Nicolas Bro) he learns it wasn’t an accident. Anders Thomas Jensen walks a razor edge of black humor and revenge flick.
Riders of Justice will be available everywhere May 21, 2021. I’m looking forward to seeing the film and writing a review.
