Pic will reunite Lindholm with Pilou AsbÃ¦k, the star of "R" and "Hijacking."
Tuva Novotny, SÃ¸ren Malling, Charlotte Munck and Dulfi Al-Jabouri also topline.
Pic is being produced by Tomas Radoor and RenÃ© Ezra for Nordisk Film Prod.
Nordisk's distribution arm will release the movie in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
Studiocanal will distribute in France, Germany, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. It will also handle international sales, kicking off in Cannes.
"From the moment we saw 'A Hijacking,' we knew that Tobias Lindholm was a director we wanted to work with at Studiocanal. As a writer and director, he is clearly one of the most exciting talents in Europe today. We are very happy to be part of his new film A WAR with Tomas, Rene and Nordisk", said Ron Halpern, EVP of international production and acquisitions at Studiocanal.
Radoor and Ezra, who worked with Lindholm on his last two films, said that "Having gone from the prison cells of Horsens State Prison to the high seas of the Indian Ocean, we will now take our offset in war-torn Afghanistan. Adhering again to the principal of 'Reality Rules' we knew that this would be our most ambitious undertaking so far and therefore required us to find the right partner to achieve our ambition and share our vision."
