Berenice Bejo, Alexander Fehling to Star in Rohfilm’s ‘Three Peaks’

Leipzig-based Rohfilm, whose Forum screener “Deadweight” unspooled at the Berlin Film Festival on Sunday, has unveiled a number of upcoming productions, including, “Three Peaks,” starring Germany’s “Homeland” star Alexander Fehling and French-Argentine actress Berenice Bejo (“The Artist”).

Jan Zabeil (“The River Used to Be a Man”) is directing the €2.5 million ($2.8 million) film, a family drama set in the Tirolean Alps. Echo Film in Italy and German pubcaster SWR are co-producing.

Also scheduled to shoot this year is Lothar Herzog’s Belorussia-set debut feature “Woods.” Pubcasters WDR and ARTE are onboard as co-producers.

In addition, Rohfilm is putting together financing for Emily Atef’s “Three Days in Quiberon,” about famed Austrian-born actress Romy Schneider, starring Marie Baeumer, Birgit Minichmayr and Charly Huebner.

The company is currently finishing up Raoul Peck’s previously announced “The Young Karl Marx,” starring August Diehl, which is currently in post-production in Belgium and Germany.

Axel Koenzen’s “Deadweight,” meanwhile, about the captain and crew of a container ship dealing with the sudden death of a crew member, is the only German feature screening in this year’s Forum sidebar. The pic, co-produced with Finnish shingle Bufo Film, stars Tommi Korpela, Ema Vetean, Archie Alemania and Manuelito Acido.
