Variety is reporting that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) has signed on to lead the cast of Suicide Tourist, a romantic mystery drama which is shooting now under Danish director Jonas Alexander Arnby (When Animals Dream).
Suicide Tourist follows Max, an insurance claims adjuster whose investigation into a man’s disappearance leads him to a uniquely secretive hotel which offers its guests elaborate assistance in fulfilling their fantasy suicides. Caught in his own existential crisis, Max soon begins to question his perception of reality and wonders if death is the only way out of the hotel.
“[I’m excited to be] working on a truly original, thrilling and moving love story,” said Coster-Waldau. “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.”
In addition to Coster-Waldau, the film also stars Tuva Novotny (Annihilation), Sobjørg Højfeldt (Ride Upon the Storm), Robert Aramayo (Game of Thrones), Lorraine Hilton (The Wolfman), Slimane Dazi (A Prophet), Jan Bijvoet (Embrace of the Serpent), Sonja Richter (The Homesman), Kaya Wilkins (Thelma) and Johanna Wokalek (The Baader Meinhof Complex).
