Levring has co-written the screenplay with Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better WorldBrothers). Sisse Graum Jørgensen (The Hunt, A Royal Affair) is producing the project for Zentropa Productions. The Danish film, which was shot in English, is set to be released in Scandinavia this fall. No word yet on a domestic distribution deal.

poshWinding has also composed the score for the upcoming drama Posh. The film is directed by Lone Scherfig and stars Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Holliday Grainger, Jessica Brown Findlay and Natalie Dormer. The movie is based on a play by Laura Wade and follows two students at Oxford University who join the Riot Club – a fictionalized version of the infamous drinking gang The Bullingdon Club – where reputations can be made or destroyed in a single evening. Wade has also written the screenplay and Graham Broadbent & Pete Czernin (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Seven Psychopaths, In Bruges) are producing the Blueprint Pictures production. The Danish composer has previously scored Scherfig’s 2007 drama Just Like Home. The director has also previously collaborated with such composers as Rachel Portman (One Day) and Paul Englishby (An Education). Posh is expected to premiere later this year.
