Director Tilde Harkamp has just started filming the Danish youth film Pretty Young Thing with some of Denmark’s rising stars in the leading roles.
The cast includes Andrea Gadeberg (Held for Ransom, Riders of Justice), Sylvester Byder (Deliver Us, Erna at War) and Albert Rudbeck (Another Round, Riders of Justice). Pretty Young Thing is written by Line Mørkeby and produced by SF Studios with producer Marcella Dichmann.
Pretty Young Thing takes place at Rosenholm gymnasium at the start of the school year. There are a lot of initiation rituals that the new first-year students have to go through, which are of great importance for their future life in high school, and not the least for their personal life. It follows six young boys and girls who are quickly challenged to their own limits in their own way.
Harkamp said: “It has been our goal from the very beginning to meet the young people at eye level, and I have been really looking forward to working with all the young acting talents. But it is also exciting to work with the underlying theme where identity, the search for boundaries and party culture will be the framework for a hopefully new youth classic in 2022.”
Pretty Young Thing is expected to premiere in Danish cinemas in 2022. SF Studios will distribute the film in the Nordics and REinvent will handle international sales.
