Joel and Mireille spoke with Collider during a set visit in Budapest, Hungary, wherein they discussed their characters’ relationship in Hanna and how it differs from what fans are used to in The Killing. Here’s a snippet:

“I think some people are gonna be a little disappointed, you know, because I know that there are a lot of people that really loved our relationship on The Killing and are very excited to see us play again,” Kinnaman told a small group of press. “I think there’s going to be an automatic longing to sort of see a similar kind of dynamic but there’s not going to be any of that. It’s very different.”

Enos echoed Kinnaman’s sentiments. “There’s no crossover, there’s none,” she said, plainly and simply. “There, we were partners with, like, a completely non-kind of romantic relationship. So we had each other’s back and we were not interested in making out. And here, we are enemies with, potentially, a history. So it’s like the polar opposite which has been fun!”

While the relationship that plays out between the two in Hanna is vastly different — Kinnaman plays Erik, Hanna’s vengeful father and former employee of Enos’ Marissa, who, for all intents and purposes, is the villain of the series — the actors were quick to acknowledge the natural chemistry that came with working together again … even if Erik’s goal is, according to Kinnaman, “securing the future and safety of Hanna.” How can he accomplish this task? “Marissa has to go down,” the actor explained.

For the duo, playing this different antagonistic dynamic has been a breath of fresh air and thoroughly enjoyable. “I wondered going in, what’s it going to be like to play this different dynamic with him because there are scenes where we end up talking about the past and stuff,” Enos revealed. “It was so fun. It’s just like a dance.”

This dance partner analogy is something actors are familiar with. When in a scene, you’re only as good as the partner you’re working with, which shows that even if the characters being played are on opposite sides, this sort of behind-the-scenes teamwork is essential. With that said, Kinnaman thoroughly agreed with Enos’ assessment, going so far as to use the same exact analogy.

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman starrer The Secrets We Keep, Israeli director Yuval Adler’s follow-up to his Berlin out-of-competition entry The Operative, has pretty much sold out worldwide at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Stuart Ford’s AGC International has wrapped up multiple territory presales for the upcoming period thriller.

AGC closed deals for The Secrets We Keep in France (Amazon), Germany (Universum), Italy (Cloud Nine), Scandinavia (Svensk), Japan (Tohokushinsha), China (Jushi) and with Sun Distribution for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Vertical Entertainment nabbed rights for the film across most of Eastern Europe, with CTB/Nashe Kino taking the title in CIS. Other deals include ones for Greece (Odeon), Indonesia (Cinema 21), Taiwan (Applause), Israel (United King) and the Middle East (Selim Ramia).

Adler, in Berlin for the world premiere Sunday night of his latest, the spy thriller The Operative, starring Diane Kruger and Martin Freeman, met with buyers one-on-one at AGC’s suite at the Ritz Carlton earlier in the week to pitch his new project. Rapace, who is an executive producer on the project, was at AGC’s offices pitching the project to buyers in Berlin.

Prometheus actress Rapace will play Maja, a holocaust survivor rebuilding her life in New York after World War II. But a random encounter with an eerily familiar man (Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman) — who seems to resemble her chief tormentor as she fled from the Nazi occupation in WWII — sets Maja off on a revenge mission. When she takes matters into her own hands, kidnapping the man, Maja sets in motion a series of memories and events that will change her whole perception of the truth.

He’s given a chance for early release by becoming an informant for the FBI (Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) and using his covert skills in an operation to take down The General, the most powerful crime boss in New York. But when the FBI sting meant to finally earn Koslow his freedom results in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Koslow finds himself caught in the crossfire between the mob and the FBI. Caught in a world of impossible choices, Pete Koslow knows he must return to prison, where he then formulates a plan to escape the clutches of three of New York City’s most powerful organizations, the mob, the NYPD and the FBI, in order to save himself and his family.
