The trio is joining Danish actor and international star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (BLACK HAWK DOWN, KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and GAME OF THRONES) who will be playing the leading role in Bier’s upcoming film which focuses on how far decent human beings are willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjust and how easily we lose our grasp on justice, when we face the unthinkable and life as we know it hangs by a thread.

The film has just started shooting on location in Denmark.

Danish actor Nikolaj Lie Kaas has established himself as one of the most recognized Danish actors of his generation. Currently playing the role as Detective Carl Mørck in the local box office smash THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES, the adaptation of the bestselling book by Jussi Adler-Olsen, Lie Kaas is next to be seen in the upcoming CHILD 44 playing opposite Tom Hardy and Joel Kinnaman. Lie Kaas will be joined by his fellow actor from BROTHERS, Ulrich Thomsen.

Since his international breakthrough in Vinterberg’s THE CELEBRATION, Ulrich Thomsen has starred in a number of films in and outside his native Denmark. Currently to be seen in the HBO-series BANSHEE, Thomsen has also starred in a number of Susanne Bier’s previous films including BROTHERS and the Academy Award®-winning IN A BETTER WORLD.

Swedish/Norwegian actress Maria Bonnevie’s international breakthrough came with the leading role in I AM DINA and Boe’s RECONSTRUCTION. Earlier this year she appeared in the English-language film BELLE DU SEIGNEUR where she played opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Marianne Faithful. A SECOND CHANCE will be her first collaboration with director Susanne Bier.

Also added to cast is international top-model May Andersen. A SECOND CHANCE will be her feature debut.
