Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D actioner shooting in Germany

COLOGNE, Germany -- Paul W.S. Anderson's "Three Musketeers" reboot, which is currently in production, picked up more than $1 million (€800,000) in subsidy financing from the Berlin-Brandenburg Medienboard on Friday.

The 3D actioner, which stars Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovic, Logan Lerman and Christoph Waltz, has secured a substantial chuck of its funding from German sources -- including $4 million from Bavaria's bank fund (BBF) and film and TV fund (FFF), about $1.3 million from the federal German Film Board and some $10 million in tax rebate cash from Germany's federal film fund, the DFFF.

Having wrapped location shooting in Bavaria, "The Three Musketeers" has decamped to Studio Babelsberg, where the bulk of the effects-heavy feature will be shot.

Anderson's Impact Pictures is producing together with German parent company Constantin Film.
