'International' gets more German subsidies
In all, the fund will pay out €5.8 million ($7.9 million) to back "The International," a co-production between Columbia Pictures' Rose Line Prods. and Studio Babelsberg's Babelsberg Film.
The fund's board argued that the funding increase is justified because "two thirds" of the film's production will take place in Germany and "The International" crew includes a wealth of German talent including actors Armin Mueller-Stahl and Axel Milberg, cinematographer Frank Griebe and production designer Uli Hanisch.
"The International" is set to begin production this month in Berlin.
