Senator boards ‘Wanted’

Corbijn directs Seymour Hoffman in thriller

Senator Film Production and Solveig Fina are co-producing “A Most Wanted Man” with Amusement Park Films, Potboiler Film and Ink Factory.

Senator’s distrib arm, Senator Film Verleih, will release the film in Germany next year.

Pic has so far secured €900,000 ($1.15 million) from Hamburg funder Filmfoerderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein (FFHSH) and is in line for additional coin from other local subsidies.

Anton Corbijn (“Control”) is directing the John Le Carre adaptation Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams.

Film is co-developed and co-financed by the U.K’s Film4 with Tessa Ross as executive producer.

Helge Sasse, Senator Entertainment CEO said: “We are happy that the support of Hamburg and Berlin subsidies made it possible for the producers to shoot the film in Germany; that made it a natural project that we are pleased to be part of. It not only fits Senator’s slate and is our kind of movie, it also allows us to participate in the production a major international blockbuster right on our doorstep.”

German films proved popular at Cannes Market with many deals signed in early trading.

Berlin’s boutique art house distributor Beta Cinema found buyers for “Lost in Siberia” and WWII drama “Suskind.”

“Lost in Siberia,” an art-house hit in Germany, sold to Israel (Lev Cinemas) and Bulgaria (Bulgaria Film Vision).

Pic is culture-clash comedy directed by Ralf Huettner about a number-cruncher (Joachim Krol) from a German mail order firm sent to oversee a project in Siberia where he finds the love of his life.

Rudolf Van den Berg’s “Suskind” sold to Italy (Madeleine), Japan (Only Hearts), China (Champs Lis); Doris Doerrie’s Berlinale Special film “Bliss” found buyers in South Korea (Peterpan Pictures), Taiwan (Swallow Wings) and Norway (AS Fidalgo).

Polish Holocaust-drama “In Darkness” by Agnieszka Holland, will get a French release through Eurozoom.

Dutch producers Springfilm and London’s Film and Music Entertainment have signed up Germany’s Media Luna to handle international sales and distribution of “Lilet Never Happened” by Dutch director and producer Jacco Groen.

The story of a 12-year-old Filipino prostitute, Mike Downey of FAME said the story, like that of the “hundreds of thousands of others who are victims of sex tourism all over the world, is one of the great tragedies of our times.”
