World Brief

Michael Weber’s Match Factory has picked up international rights to Hans Weingartner’s upcoming “Free Rainer,” a satire about the German TV industry.

Weingartner’s Berlin-based Kahuuna Films and Vienna’s Coop99 are producing the pic, which will shoot later this year. “Free Rainer” expands on the revolutionary themes of Weingartner’s “The Edukators,” a Cannes competition pic in 2004 that sold in 50 countries.
