London — Sales company Beta Cinema has picked up worldwide rights to Berlin Film Festival competition entry “24 Weeks.” The film stars Julia Jentsch, who won a Berlin Silver Bear for Oscar-nominated drama “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.”

She and her husband Marcus (Bjarne Maedel) have a choice, but little time… With a strong nature and a witty answer to everything, Astrid now feels lost, on her own, impossible to continue her comedy routine. Only she can take this momentous decision. »

Steve Coogan’s ‘Shepherds and Butchers’ to Play at Berlin Film Festival

21 January 2016 9:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section has completed its lineup, which includes the world premiere of Oliver Schmitz’s “Shepherds and Butchers,” starring Steve Coogan and Andrea Riseborough.

Coogan, who starred in, co-wrote and produced the Oscar-nominated “Philomena,” plays hot-shot lawyer John Weber in “Shepherds and Butchers.” Weber faces his biggest test when he agrees to defend a prison guard who has killed seven men. What ensues is a compelling charge against the death penalty itself.

The film is produced by Anant Singh and Brian Cox for Distant Horizon and Videovision Entertainment; WestEnd Films is handling international sales.

Two other Panorama films look at the issue of the death penalty: the Brazilian documentary “Curumim” and the previously announced “I, Olga Hepnarova,” which opens the main section of Panorama.

Fiction titles added to Panorama:

Antes o tempo não acabava (Time Was Endless) – Brazil/Germany
