Remix is a Danish 2008 feature film directed by Martin Hagbjer starring Micky Skeel Hansen as a 16-year-old pop singer Ruben. Remix is inspired by the true story of Danish pop idol Jon Gade Nørgaard known by the mononym Jon. Jon was also the subject of the documentary feature film Solo released in 2007. The film was released on January 25, 2008.
Ruben (played by Micky Skeel Hansen), an aspiring young man is offered a record contract by the music executive Tanya (portrayed by Camilla Bendix). The film, which co-stars Jakob Cedergren, Sofie Lassen-Kahlke, Henrik Prip and Anette Støvelbæk, follows Ruben's fall from grace in the hands of the music industry.

Remix was a major film by Martin Hagbjer who had won the 2005 Prize of the Children's Jury at Lübeck Nordic Film Days. Reviews were mixed. Most critics noted a lack of surprise, but praised the fine acting, especially by the film's two leads Camilla Bendix and Micky Skeel Hansen.
Berlingske Tidende's film critic Ebbe Iversen gave the film four stars out of six and called Micky Skeel Hansen "a true star with musicality, attractive looks and a both defiant and vulnerable radiance which gives him the appearance of a new James Dean".
