Kreuzpaintner unleashes Storm

Production company develops five projects

BERLIN — Marco Kreuzpaintner, helmer of German hits such as “Summer Storm” and “Krabat” as well as the 2007 Roland Emmerich-produced drama “Trade,” has set up his own shingle with partners Fabian M. Wolfart and Ossie von Richthofen.

The Berlin-based shingle, Summer Storm Ent., has five projects in development, including “Her Name Was Lola,” a German-Brazilian co-production about a girl from London who falls for a young man from Rio.

Brazilian production powerhouse Conspiracao is partnering on the love story, which stars Jonathan Haagensen (“City of God,” “City of Men”). Budgeted at Euros 3.5 million ($4.9 million), the English-language pic will shoot in both London and Rio.

Summer Storm is also developing “Lemminge,” a German-language love story centering on two suicidal people, and two planned international projects: “Boy Runner,” about a professional sports manager who discovers a young African athlete; and “Dreamfisher,” a sci-fi drama in which dreams become a commodity to be downloaded, traded and manipulated.

Kreuzpaintner is also looking to make “The 8th Day,” a big-budget sci-fi pic, with a major studio partner.
