Belle and A United Kingdom filmmaker Amma Asante is set to direct Constantin’s latest drama series adaptation of Peter Höeg’s Smilla’s Sense of Snow.

The series, which was already made into a 1997 feature from filmmaker Bille August and starring Julia Ormond, follows Smilla Jaspersen, whose investigation into the mysterious death of an immigrant Inuit child from the projects evolves into a much grander supernatural epic.
