Teuton funders back Rothemund

Oscar-nommed helmer set to begin comedy pic

COLOGNE — Marc Rothemund and Detlev Buck have lined up new projects, supported by national funding bodies FFA and BKM.

Rothemund, who was nominated for the foreign-language Oscar for WWII resistance drama “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days,” has turned to comedy for his next pic, “Pornorama.” Produced by Bernd Eichinger’s Constantin Film, it tells the story of two brothers trying to make a sex film during the 1967 “summer of love.” Rothemund received $600,000 from FFA.

The same amount went to new projects by Buck and Christoph Schrewe. Buck, who just received the silver Lola for gritty urban drama “Tough Enough” (Knallhart), will adapt popular kids book “Haende weg von Mississippi” (Hands Off Mississippi). Schrewe is preparing comedy “Ausbilder Schmidt — der Film” (Instructor Schmidt — The Movie).

Adnan Kose drew $480,000 for drama “Ironman,” the true story of a junkie turned competitive athlete.

Also considered in the latest allocation from FFA were the latest sequels in kids film series “Die wilden Kerle” and “Die wilden Huehner,” as well as Doris Doerrie’s “How to Cook Your Life” and “Prinzessin Lillifee” from Veit Vollmer, Udo Beissel and Michael Ekbladh.
