Tim Roth, Neve Campbell board 'Sea-Wolf'


CANNES -- Tim Roth and Neve Campbell have joined German star Sebastian Koch ("The Lives of Others") in the cast of "Sea-Wolf," the $20 million adventure two-parter from Herbert Kloiber's Tele-Munchen Group for RHI Entertainment and German public broadcaster ZDF.

Koch will star as the crazed seaman Wolf Larson in the new adaptation of the Jack London classic. Roth will play his brother and rival Death Larsen while Campbell will star as Maude, a runaway bride who lands on Wolf's ship.

Mike Barker ("A Good Woman") will direct the mini for Tele-Munchen's production division Clasart Television from a script by Nigel Williams ("Elizabeth I").

Shooting is set to start in Halifax, Canada at the end April for delivery this fall. ZDF will air the series in Germany with RHI handling U.S. rights.

Tele-Munchen is using "Sea-Wolf" as the flagship to launch its new international sales outfit, which is being run by ex-Telepool sales exec Carlos Hertel. TMG holds all worldwide rights to "Sea-Wolf" outside of Germany and the U.S.
