All In, Studio Babelsberg tackle ‘Erebos’

Cyber thriller turns on deadly game

Germany’s All In Production is teaming with Studio Babelsberg for the film adaptation of “Erebos,” Austrian author Ursula Poznanski’s novel about a deadly computer game that manipulates its players.

The pair are looking for a U.S. partner for the international production.

“Erebos,” which picked up this year’s Youth Literature Prize at the Frankfurt Book Fair, centers on a mysterious and highly addictive computer game that begins to take control of its players. Set in a London school, the story follows a teen who tries to uncover the secret behind “Erebos” and save his fellow students from a game of life and death.

All In topper Annette Reeker optioned the film rights from German publisher Loewe Verlag,

” ‘Erebos’ is an extremely exciting project with international potential and the material is already generating great interest,” said Studio Babelsberg co-topper Christoph Fisser.
