Jasper M. de Gier will relaunch the company, which was declared insolvent 13 years ago.
The Dutch entrepreneur and investor Jasper M. de Gier has resurrected the former Neuer Markt player Helkon Media Ag to produce European feature films and TV series.
The Munich-based predecessor, which was founded in 1991 by the late Werner Koenig and Martin Heldmann and finally wound up in 2003 after prolonged insolvency proceedings, was launched this week in Berlin by de Gier’s Luxembourg-based financial investment company de Gier & Co.
De Gier had been working since 2007 on reviving the remnants of the former Helkon empire.
¨Our goal is to pick up where the old Helkon left off, i.e. to enable the new Helkon to connect to the success of its predecessor, which ran into difficulties after the tragic death of Werner Koenig in November 2000 and the collapse of the Neuer Markt,¨ said De Gier.
The reincarnation will focus on film production, film distribution »
