Arndt has been instrumental in redefining German cinema in the modern era and, more recently, enjoyed major success in television. He co-founded X Filme Creative Pool in 1994 with filmmakers Wolfgang Becker, Dani Levy and Tom Tykwer with the aim of building an independent, creator-controlled company. Major successes over the years have included Tykwer’s “Run Lola Run,” Becker’s “Good Bye Lenin!” and Andreas Dresen’s “Summer in Berlin.” X Filme was also quick to expand internationally, producing such works as Michael Haneke’s Oscar-winning “Amour,” Lana and Lilly Wachowski and Tykwer’s “Cloud Atlas” and Tykwer’s “A Hologram for the King” – the latter two starred Tom Hanks. More recent productions have included Sky’s historical crime drama hit series “Babylon Berlin.”
