Comedian Chris Rock is set to add another film to his directing repertoire.
He is in the process of developing and directing a remake of the 2020 Danish film “Another Round,” originally directed by Thomas Vinterberg.
The Danish version won an Oscar for Best International Feature Film.
Inspired by Norwegian psychiatrist Finn Skårderud’s idea that the human body has an inherent alcohol deficiency, Martin and his three close friends embark on a daring experiment in “Another Round.”
Their goal: to determine if daytime drinking can lead them to become better versions of themselves and learn to live life anew.
However, they find themselves in a mess after they take the experiment a bit too far.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson, Brad Weston, and Collin Creighton are reportedly part of the team.
The original film featured Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, and Lars Ranthe as four high school teachers conducting an experiment to maintain a constant level of inebriation throughout their workday. They argued that a certain level of alcohol in their system boosts creativity and happiness.
Chris Rock has been expanding his directing portfolio, gaining recognition for “Top Five,” a film that Paramount Pictures acquired rights to, making it the biggest deal at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival.
His directing credits also include “Head of State” and “I Think I Love My Wife.”
The release date for the Danish remake of “Another Round” is yet to be announced.
