Daniel Bruehl launches fouronfilm

'Gnadenfrist' to shoot in South America

BERLIN — German star Daniel Bruehl, who is currently appearing in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” has launched a new production shingle with Berlin-based Film1.

The new outfit, fouronfilm, also based in Berlin, will focus on filmmaker-driven films and already has a number of projects in the works, including Andreas Kleinert’s “Gnadenfrist,” based on the novel by Dutch writer Arnon Gruenberg and set to shoot in South America.

Bruehl, who shot to fame in Wolfgang Becker’s 2003 comedy-drama “Good Bye, Lenin” and has starred in several Film1 productions, including Alain Gsponer’s upcoming “Lila, Lila” and Sebastian Schipper’s “Ein Freund von mir,” will serve as an active producer at fouronfilm.

Film1 is aiming to expand its repertoire with the new company by focusing on international coproductions.

Established in 2003 by producers Sebastian Zuehr, Henning Ferber and Marcus Welke, Film1 most recently produced Warner Bros.’ “Phantomschmerz,” a critically acclaimed drama starring Til Schweiger as an ambitious cyclist and lady’s man who loses a leg in an accident. Company also produced Schipper’s “Mitte Ende August,” which Senator is releasing in July.
