Berlin: Download THR's Day 3 'Daily'
The Hollywood Reporter's third daily from the 64th annual Berlin Film Festival features an interview with Solution Entertainment Group's Myles Nestel, news about the showdown at Exclusive Media, the latest deals and castings at the market, and several reviews.
Nestel sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about his induction into Sundance and why the company’s upcoming spy thriller The November Man features Pierce Brosnan as the James Bond-like character Nestel always wanted to see.
Vernon God Little
THR broke the news that Mike Tyson is in talks to star as the ax murderer in Werner Herzog’s adaptation of DBC Pierre’s Booker Prize-winning coming of age novel Vernon God Little. The producers are also in talks with Pamela Anderson and Russell Brand to join the cast of the project, which has Austin Abrams cast in the title role opposite Sasha Pieterse.
Nazif Mujic was the toast of the Berlin festival last year, winning the Silver Bear for Danis Tanovic's An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker. A year on, the Romani man from Bosnia is back in the German capital, this time seeking asylum for himself and his family. "I don't want to be rich. I just want an ordinary job, a chance to feed my family,” Mujic said. “I would give them my Silver Bear. If that is what it costs to be able to stay.”
