According to the report, Another Round was one of the most requested projects by production companies, even before it won the Oscar. For this reason, Leonardo DiCaprio and his company Appian Way were the winners to make their own version of the Danish film. That said, Thomas Vinterberg (creator and director of the original film) will executive produce with Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing.
That said, Leonardo Dicaprio will be as the character played by Mads mikkelsen and Mike Hampton will be the director, waiting to get a screenwriter. The announcement was recent, so no official release date has been announced yet. What did happen is that this news led to controversy on social networks. Many users are offended that they want to "make American" a Danish film that is already perfect as it is. In this way, people do not understand why Americans have this need to transform foreign films into Yankee versions. It remains to be seen what happens when this film is released.
