Studio Babelsberg is one of Germany’s leading production facilities. Paramount’s “Without Remorse,” starring Michael B. Jordan, wrapped in December. The studio is in pre-production with two major film projects, yet to be announced. Fisser said: “Thanks to the improved German Federal Film Fund DFFF2 we were able to acquire two big budget international productions that will keep us busy for the next months. In the first half of the year, all stages at Studio Babelsberg are fully booked.”
