Netflix Taps Nicolas Winding Refn to Direct ‘Copenhagen Cowboy’

Danish film director Nicolas Winding Refn has signed on with Netflix to create Copenhagen Cowboy, a six-part series that will star Angela Bundalovic. Set in the criminal underworld of the Danish capital, it has been described by its producers as a “thrill-inducing, neon-drenched noir series.” The series is being co-written by Sara Isabella Jonsson, Johanne Algren, and Mona Masri.

Refn was acclaimed for his earlier noirish works such as Drive and The Neon Demon. He created the Pusher trilogy of crime flicks set in Denmark.

Bundalovic, who will play the role of Miu in the series, had earlier appeared in The Rain, another Danish hit for Netflix. The cast of Copenhagen Cowboy will also include Zlatko Buric, who’d played a Serbian drug lord in the Pusher films. The cast will be rounded out by Refn’s daughter Lola Corfixen as well as Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger, among others.

In describing his new venture, Refn said: “With Copenhagen Cowboy, I am returning to my past to shape my future by creating a series, an expansion of my constantly evolving alter-egos, now in the form of my young heroine, Miu.”

The director also expressed his gratitude to Netflix: “Collaborating with Netflix and bringing this show to life has been an absolutely wonderful experience on all levels. I not only perceive them as my partners with many future adventures to come, but also as my friends. [A] new term has been born: Netflix Winding Refn.”

Refn had most recently worked with Amazon Prime in another noir series, Too Old to Die Young, set in Los Angeles and starring Miles Teller.

In announcing the collaboration, Netflix’s Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, director of the platform’s Nordic Original Series, said “We are absolutely thrilled to finally be able to announce that we have partnered up with Nicolas Winding Refn, one of Denmark’s most acclaimed filmmakers, and are bringing him back to Denmark to produce a local Danish show after more than 15 years abroad.”

Refn has also expressed his enthusiasm for new opportunities made possible by technical innovation. As he recently declared: “Streaming is an ocean of possibilities.

It’s so interesting to just come to work every day and just paint, until I ran out of money. I think the studios are ultimately getting ready for streaming, that’s common knowledge. The difference between streaming and more traditional theatrical is that streaming is an energy flow around us that runs 24 hours a day and seven days a week, and we can tap into and consume it whenever we want. That is a whole new ideology for how to exist.”

Copenhagen Cowboy has already been in production in Denmark. The six-episode series is slated to be released on Netflix worldwide later in 2022.
