Men. Chicken. Men and chicken. More specifically, “Men & Chicken.” The latest offering from indie distributor Drafthouse Films, the Anders Thomas Jensen dark comedy “Men & Chicken,” has landed itself a plucky spring release date after a successful festival run that included stops at TIFF and Fantastic Fest. The film, starring Mad Mikkelsen, David Dencik, Nikolaj Lie Kass, Søren Malling, Nicolas Bro and a bunch of feathered friends, will open in Los Angeles and New York on April 22, followed by a traditional roll out in over 30 major markets.
You had us at “lunatic tendencies.” Also, “chicken.”
