IN PRODUCTION. Oscar nominated director Martin Zandvliet has begun principal photography on his adaptation of Jussi Adler-Olsen’s bestselling crime novel ‘The Marco Effect’, the fifth installment in the Department Q-series. The film is expected to premiere 1 October 2020. Last year it was announced that acclaimed veteran actor Ulrich Thomsen, known from Cannes-winner ‘A Celebration’ and ‘Adam’s Apples’ amongst other films, would take over the leading role as Carl Mørck. Zaki Youssef, who received a Danish Robert and Bodil nomination for his turn in Ulaa Salim’s ‘Sons of Denmark’, will play the role of Assad, Mørck’s partner. ”
