Rat Pack calls in new FBI Man

Jerry Cotton makes bigscreen debut

Fictional FBI agent Jerry Cotton, the hero of an ongoing series of German pulp fiction books that date back to the 1950s, is to get a film makeover.

Rat Pack Filmproduktion, a subsid of Constantin Film, has bought the rights and set Christian Tramitz (“Manitou’s Shoe”) to play the lead. Filming will begin next summer.

“Jerry Cotton” follows in the footsteps of Rat Pack’s “Wixxer” series, which is a spoof on the German-made Edgar Wallace thrillers. The Jerry Cotton series was established by publishing house Bastei, and will this year reach its 2,600th issue. It has been translated into 14 languages, and has seen two B-movie adapta-tions in the 1960s.
