Roman Polanski Picks up German Funding for 'Carnage'
Gets $348,000 for his adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s play 'God of Carnage' starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly.
COLOGNE, Germany -- Roman Polanski has picked up $348,000 (€250,000) in production funding for Carnage, his adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s play God of Carnage starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly from regional subsidy body the FFF Bayern.
The film, currently shooting in Paris, is the story of two couples who meet to discuss a schoolyard brawl between their sons and end up in a furious debate over life, civilization and society. Germany’s Constantin Film is co-producing together with France’s SBS Productions and Poland’s SPI.
But the FFF’s biggest checks went to locals, with Marcus H. Rosenmuller picking up $1.2 million (€850,000) towards his new Bavarian dramedy St. Daisy and Bora Dagtekin getting the same amount for Turkish For Beginners, the feature film version of his International Emmy-winning sitcom.
