Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to star in 'Suicide Tourist'

Los Angeles, Oct 25 (PTI) Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has bagged his next project in "Suicide Tourist".

The "Game of Thrones" star will lead a distinguished European cast in the mystery drama studded with romantic elements, Variety reported.

Coster-Waldau stars opposite Swedish actor Tuva Novotny, who has films such as "Borg vs McEnroe" and "Annihilation" to her credit.

The 48-year-old actor said he was excited to be part of "a truly original, thrilling and moving love story".

"We are halfway through the shoot, and my enthusiasm has only increased seeing the set design, the work by our DP Niels (Thastum) and my fellow actors," he added.

The movie is Danish director Jonas Alexander Arnby's follow-up to his breakout debut "When Animals Dream", which played in Cannes Critics' Week.

"Suicide Tourist" comes from Copenhagen-based Snowglobe, which has produced films like "Thelma", "The Untamed" and "Birds of a Passage".

The project also stars British actor Robert Aramayo, who played young Eddard Stark in "GOT", and "Thelma" actor Kaya Wilkins.

The cast also includes Denmark's Sobjorg Hojfeldt and Sonja Richter; France's Slimane Dazi, Belgium's Jan Bijvoet, and Germany's Johanna Wokalek.

Shooting is currently underway in Norway and production wraps next month.

The studio is eyeing a spring 2019 release.
