Thomas Wobke resigns from C+W+P

German film production company he co-founded in 1992

BERLIN -- Producer Thomas Wobke has resigned from the management board of Claussen + Wobke + Putz, the Munich-based film production company he co-founded in 1992.

Wobke will remain a shareholder in C+W+P, one of Germany's most acclaimed indie production houses, but will focus mainly on his own projects. These include the post-apocalyptic thriller "2016 -- The End of Night" from first-timer Tim Fehlbaum which Roland Emmerich is executive producing and which Paramount Pictures Germany has picked up to distribute locally.

A veteran producer, Wobke's credits include such German box office hits as "The Pharmacist" (1997), "Anatomy" (2000) and "Krabat" (2008).

C+W+P is currently in pre-production on "Braincopy," a sci-fi thriller from Oscar-winner Stefan Ruzowitzky ("The Counterfeiters") as well as the rom-com "Offroad," featuring German star Nora Tschirner.
