30 May 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

COLOGNE, Germany -- Munich-based Production Company Berg Film has acquired the German remake rights to The Interview, a 2003 drama from murdered Dutch director Theo van Gogh. The film, about a failed political journalist who is forced by his editor to interview a soap actress, already is being remade in English by director-actor Steve Buscemi with Sienna Miller co-starring. The German version will feature Yvonne Catterfeld, one of Germany's top soap stars and a local pop-music sensation. Berg Film plans to begin shooting in January, for a tentative fall 2007 release. Buscemi's The Interview is in postproduction. Cinemavault Releasing International is handling worldwide rights to the feature. »

RTL cancels German 'Pops'

14 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

COLOGNE, Germany -- RTL is pulling the plug on the German version of hit British live music format Top of The Pops after seven years, citing sinking ratings. Germany was one of the first foreign territories to pick up the BBC format, putting a local language version on air in 1998. Produced by German music specialists MME, the show's Cologne studio has featured live performances by some of the biggest names in pop music both internationally (Britney Spears, U2, Madonna) and local champs such as Wir sind Helden, Xavier Naidoo and Yvonne Catterfeld. But Top of The Pops was never a ratings hit for RTL and, despite a January re-launch, the show continues to under-perform, delivering less than 10% of the key 14-49 demographic. RTL plans to air the last edition of Top of The Pops on April 8. The British format is on air in 120 countries worldwide. »
