Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson Movie ‘Alone in Berlin’ Starts to Shoot

LONDON — “Alone in Berlin,” which stars Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson and Daniel Bruhl, will start to shoot on Friday on location in Berlin, Cologne and Gorlitz, Germany.

Pic is the English-language adaptation of Hans Fallada’s novel, based on the true story of a working-class couple who conducted a series of anonymous protests against the Nazi regime during World War II. The screenplay was written by Achim von Borries (“Good Bye Lenin!”) and Vincent Perez.

Joining the production team are cinematographer Christophe Beaucarne (“Irina Palm,” “Mr. Nobody”), production designer Jean-Vincent Puzos (“Amour,” “10,000 B.C.”) and editor Francois Gedigier (“On the Road,” “Yves Saint Laurent”).

X Filme’s Stefan Arndt and Uwe Schott (“Cloud Atlas,” “Amour”) and Master Movie’s Marco Pacchioni (“Bluesbreaker,” “Bye Bye Blondie”) are producing together with James Schamus (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) and FilmWave’s Christian Grass and Paul Trijbits (“Jane Eyre,” “Saving Mr. Banks”).
