The film was produced by Christian Becker and Benjamin Munz for Germany based Rat Pack Film Production with Todd Brown, Nick Spicer, Aram Tertzakian and Nate Bolotin serving as executive producers for XYZ Films. 

The deal was negotiated by Sean Berney, manager of acquisitions for IFC Midnight, with Bolotin on behalf of the filmmakers.
