Bille August to direct Karen Blixen adaptation ‘Ehrengard’ for Netflix

The set designer will be Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II.

Danish director Bille August is to direct an adaptation of Karen Blixen’s last work ‘Ehrengard’ for Sf Studios and Netflix.

Blixen is the Danish writer whose autobiographical memoir inspired the 1985 film Out Of Africa. She completed Ehrengard just before her death in 1962.

The set designer is Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II, renowned for her bold and colourful personal style.

Ehrengard is set in the fairy tale kingdom of Babenhausen, where the monarch’s search for an heir leads to a scandal and major schisms within the royal family.
