FilmNation will launch international sales on “The Good Nurse,” a thriller set to star Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne, at the European Film Market (EFM), Variety has learned.
The film marks Tobias Lindholm’s English-language feature directing debut. The Danish filmmaker previously oversaw “A Hijacking” and “A War.” The film centers on Charlie Cullen, a nurse who is regarded as one of the most prolific serial killers in history and was known by the moniker, “Angel of Death.” He is believed to have been responsible for the deaths of as many as 300 patients over 16 years. Redmayne will play Cullen and Chastain will play a nurse who begins to unravel the true scope of his crimes.
Redmayne won an Oscar for “The Theory of Everything” in 2014 and scored another nomination for “The Danish Girl” in 2015. His upcoming projects include “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3” and Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” Chastain was nominated for 2011’s “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty” in 2012. She will next appear as Tammy Faye Bakker in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” and in the spy thriller “355.”
Krysty Wilson-Cairns wrote the screenplay based on the book by Charles Graeber. Protozoa Pictures’ Scott Franklin and Darren Aronofsky will produce the film, along with FilmNation Entertainment.

About Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House
A Doll’s House is a modern Scandinavian classic written in 1879 by renowned Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen and is regarded as a modern tragedy with themes of naturalism and realism. The three-act play received its world premiere at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark on 21 December 1879 and is set in an unspecified town in Norway in 1879. The story centres on a married woman named Nora Helmer who lives an unfulfilling life as a mother of three playing out society’s conventions that prescribe women to be mere housewives without many opportunities for self-fulfilment.
Ibsen’s piece is interpreted as a feminist play and it caused quite the stir at the time of its premiere, having made headlines in newspapers all around the world. Hardly anyone could fathom the play’s subject matter as ever being a cause for controversy in modern-day Scandinavia, a region widely considered to be progressive and a blueprint for building a functioning society.
