Switzerland's Zodiac Pictures, German Studio MMC Form Joint Venture

The two companies plan to jointly develop and produce feature films.

BERLIN – Swiss production house Zodiac Pictures and Cologne-based film studio MMC Movies have set up a joint venture to co-develop and produce feature films for the German market.

Two projects the group has in the pipeline include a comedy from German director Micha Lewinsky (Will You Marry Me?) and an adaptation of the hit Swiss comic book Papa Moll.

Zodiac and MMC first worked together in 2006 on Zodiac’s William Tell-inspired spoof Tell, which Universal released in Germany.
