Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has signed on to the thriller 3 Things , playing a man entering the witness protection program with three unusual requests.

According to Variety, which first broke the news, Coster-Waldau will play a suspected bank robber and explosives expert named Mikael, who enters the witness protection program with three demands: Before he’ll testify, he wants to see his former girlfriend, obtain the contents of a mysterious box he has stashed away, and be served butter chicken from his favorite restaurant.

Coster-Waldau will star opposite Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, another Danish Game of Thrones vet who recently starred in Pitch Perfect 2.

Danish writer Jens Dahl, best known for the 2010 crime thriller Pusher, wrote the script and will make his directing debut. Jacob Lohmann and Lærke Winther round out the cast, with Profile Pictures’ Caroline Schlüter Bingestam and Jacob Jarek producing.
