Two actors shipshape for London redo


Tim Roth and Neve Campbell have joined German star Sebastian Koch in "Sea-Wolf," a two-part miniseries from Herbert Kloiber's Tele Munchen for RHI Entertainment and German pubcaster ZDF.

Koch ("The Lives of Others") will star as seaman Wolf Larsen in the 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 will direct the mini for Tele Munchen production division Clasart from a script by Nigel Williams ("Elizabeth I").

Shooting is set to start this month in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for delivery in the 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 international sales outfit, which is being run by ex-Telepool sales executive Carlos Hertel. TMG holds all worldwide rights to "Sea-Wolf" outside of Germany and the U.S.
