DCM has picked up German rights for the new drama from the filmmaker behind festival hit ‘Nothing Bad Can Happen.'

German actress Nina Hoss (Barbara) has signed on to star in Pelikanblut (Pelican Blood), the new drama from writer/director Katrin Gebbe (Nothing Bad Can Happen).

Berlin-based distributor DCM has picked up the film for Germany. Pelikanblut is one of the projects at this year's co-production market in Berlin, where lead producer Verena Grafe-Hoft of Junafilm will be pitching the project to potential partners.

The film is described as an emotional drama tracing the relationship between a mother (Hoss) and her adoptive daughter.

Gebbe's feature debut, Nothing Bad Can Happen, premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where it won widespread critical praise and comparisons to Oscar winner Michael Haneke's work (Amour).
