If you’re not following Mads Mikkelsen career as of late, well then, you’re doing something wrong. He currently stars as Hannibal Lecter in NBCs stunning “Hannibal,” can do period pieces a la “A Royal Affair” and is perhaps one of the best Bond villains of all time. Now, thanks to The Playlist, we have a clip of more Mikkelsen badassery from his upcoming film “Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas.”
Based on the novel “Michael Kohlhaas,” by Heinrich von Kleist, “Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas” stars Mikkelsen as a sixteenth century man who resorts to crime when justice isn’t served. In the trailer we see a silent Mikkelsen, staring intently at the man accusing him of having a wicked heart. He’s also wielding a sword; a sword he will no doubt use eventually.
