Stalked: Nazi Officer's Wife, Jack and Special Forces
Three stories which caught my eye this week, all new films and all very interesting stories in themselves with some cracking cast members behind them all. Well worth a look through, and film's I'm definitely going to be keeping my eye on.
Mads Mikkelsen and Noomi Rapace are set to star in Nazi Officer's Wife. The film is based on the novel by Edith Hahn Beer which tells the story of an Austrian Jew who survived the Holocaust by using an assumed identity and even ended up marrying a Nazi officer. The story in Screen Daily tells us that the story sees the character go from an idealistic law student to a desperate, determined survivor who survives through Nazi occupied Munich until after the war when she becomes a judge and manages to free her husband from a prisoner of war camp.
They have more information and tell us that the killer doesn't remember that he was a serial killer and falls in love with his doctor helping him through his illness. However his memory returns and he must decide which path to take, killer or lover.
Sounds another great story.
Diane Kruger is set to join a film called Special Forces, which will see her playing a French journalist who is kidnapped by the Taliban. Djimon Hounsou, Denis Menochet, Benoît Magimel, and Raphaël Personnaz are all set to star with Stéphane Rybojad directing and, according to Variety, will be shot with the help of the French army.
Some great ideas for films in there, and some great cast lists, some films to watch out for.
