Ruzowitzky to direct Hesse adaptation 'Narcissus and Goldmund'

13 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Oscar-winning Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) is to direct Hermann Hesse’s 1930 international bestseller and cult novel Narcissus and Goldmund.

Producers Helge Sasse (Tempest Film) and Christoph Müller (Mythos Film) are in Cannes to meet potential partners for the international project which is set to have a double-digit million Euros budget.

Ruzowitzky, who has just completed shooting the Us thriller Patient Zero in London, is also writing the screenplay for the story with a setting in the late Middle Ages.

Principal photography is set to begin in late summer 2016.

Other novels by Hesse such as Siddharta, Steppenwolf and Demian were adapted by filmmakers in the past for the cinema, with German broadcaster Ard tackling his 1909 novella Die Heimkehr in 2011.

Narcissus and Goldmund is one of the first projects being planned by former Senator Entertainment CEO Helge Sasse at his new production outfit Tempest Film which he launched last summer with Solveig Fina.

Berlin: Lineup Delivers Auteurs and Alluring Assortment of World Cinema

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t know where to start with the jumbo-sized Berlin festival lineup? Join “The Club,” as the latest film from Oscar-nominated “No’s” director Pablo Larrain is called. The good news is that this year’s program offers plenty of enticing titles, clustered around a few intriguing trends.

A Platform for Hollywood

Last year, Berlin set “The Grand Budapest Hotel” off on the right foot. The film went on to become the highest-grossing film of Wes Anderson’s career. Universal has even bigger expectations for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which plans to seduce its first crowds in Berlin. On the more demure side, Disney will unwrap its live-action, Kenneth Branagh-made “Cinderella,” while “Twilight” director Bill Condon offers a low-key, late-life look at suddenly ubiquitous Sherlock with “Mr. Holmes.”

Films We Expected to See in Park City

There are a handful of titles that skipped U.S. fests to premiere in Berlin. »

Radical Evil: The film that nobody wants to see

5 January 2015 10:07 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Generally, when the director Stefan Ruzowitzky makes a film, everyone wants to see it. His 2007 feature The Counterfeiters (about a secret plan by the Nazis to destabilise Britain by flooding the country with forged pound notes), won an Oscar. His children's movie, Lily the Witch: the Dragon and the Magic Book (2009) broke box-office records in Germany. He is about to direct an English-language action-thriller called Patient Zero that will star Matt Smith of Dr Who fame and that is likely to be popular too. However, there is one film that the genial Austrian recently directed that no one at all seems to want to see. »
