"Frederiks Unge år" (2014) ["Frederik's Young Years"]

Apparently a new film about the crown prince, which covers the years from the early 90s to early 00s, will be filmed.

Director Christian Tafdrup, who is currently working to finalize the script, told Politiken that the film will focus on the key events and key people in the crown prince's life.
"It is well known that he would be king, and that the population initially did not consider him as particularly suitable for it. So of course the film is about a successor to assume its task. But it is also a universal story about a young man who becomes an adult. For me it about a young man in their 20s who are struggling with it, often struggling with in his 20s: his identity and recognition from family and the outside world, says Christian Tafdrup to Politiken."

Not overly fond of Tafdrup's work as a director, but maybe that's just me who's been dragged through too many (three is a lot) of his (rather awful) shorts. Also, I think it's awkward to make a film about someone who's still alive, but whatever.

Those actors suggested are good (brilliance takes a human form in Paprika Steen) - just not for those parts. Anders W. Berthelsen looks nothing like Frederik, in fact he's one of the people I'd say look least like him. Nikolaj Lie Kaas more like, he's also incredible at transforming himself into the character he's playing. Stine Stengade may bear a slight resemblance to Mary (not really, just her hair), but she's meh too. Sidse Babett Knudsen may be a bit too old (her looks would be spot on, plus she's one of our best actresses) to play Mary in her late 20's but I don't know, I still think she'd be amazing. For Margrethe and Henrik? I don't know, just not the actors suggested.

Nice you are coming to Denmark. Hope you will have some nice days here But yes certainly bring some warm clothes and as Mary thick socks in your boots. There's even a snowstorm on its way. And I thought that spring was coming

I think that maybe Bodil Jørgensen would be a idea to play Margrethe. She is maybe a bit too young, but still. She is very characteristic. I have no idea who could play Henrik.

I completely agree about Anders W. Berthelsen doesn't match for Frederik. Nikolaj Lie Kaas is an ideal choice, but for me it could Mads Mikkelsen as well. He is charming, boyish and vulnerable like Frederik, IMO. For Mary the actress Sidse Babett springs to my mind too. Both in terms of their looks, charm and strength, but yes maybe a bit too old to play a young Mary Donaldson. It will be interesting to see who will play the various royals.

Bodil Jørgensen is not a bad suggestion at all, she's a chameleon too, she's capable of doing all sort of roles. For Henrik, maybe someone like Bent Mejding (he'll just have to get a belly prosthetic and a French accent ), but again, I have a hard time picturing him as Henrik (he'll always be Jørgen Varnæs in my mind).

Mads Mikkelsen would be amazing too. He's without a doubt our finest actor, he could do anything really.

Both links make reference to "Frederiks Unge år" which Google translates as "Frederik's Young Years" or in better English, "Frederik's Youth". It's not the most catchy title but it could always be changed prior to the film's release.
