Danish star Ulrich Thomsen to star in Markus Imboden's 'The Face'
New Berlin-based production house Films in Motion plans to shoot the English-language feature in Germany.
BERLIN – Danish star Ulrich Thomsen is reportedly attached to star in the period drama The Face from Swiss director Markus Imboden.
Thomsen, who appears in Susanne Bier's Golden Globe-nominated In A Better World, will play a man suffering from amnesia who is fleeing through a post World War II ravaged Germany but doesn't remember what, or who, he is running from. He also doesn't know why he's wearing the stripped uniform of a concentration camp inmate.
New Berlin-based production house Films in Motion plans to shoot the English-language feature in Germany. It is currently putting together financing on the project, budgeted at just over $9 million.
