Florian David Fitz, Matthias Schweighöfer to star in buddy comedy '100 Things' for Picture Tree
Florian David Fitz and Matthias Schweighöfer will star in buddy comedy 100 Things, which Berlin-based Picture Tree International is launching sales on at the European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin.
Warner Bros Germany is handling domestic distribution and will release the film in Germany in December 2018.
Principal photography is scheduled to start at the end of this month on the €7m project. The story follows two start-up entrepreneurs who spend their time surrounded by gadgets. They decide to make a bet and give up all of their possessions, only adding one item back into their lives per day, to see who can last the longest.
German polymath Fitz, known for his roles in Jesus Loves Me (which had more than two million admissions in German-speaking territories) and Vincent Wants To Sea, wrote the screenplay, will direct and is also starring alongside Schweighöfer, who is set to appear in Thomas Vinterberg’s submarine drama Kursk.
Picture Tree will introduce the project to buyers this week. Producers are Pantaleon Films, which previously produced The Manny and The Most Beautiful Day, both of which Picture Tree also handled sales on.
Picture Tree’s EFM slate also includes two further Pantaleon projects, Hot Dog and A Jar Full
Of Life, both of which will have market premieres in Berlin.
