Ulrich Thomsen Cast in THE FACE
Director Markus Imboden has apparently cast the lead in his next period drama, THE FACE. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Swiss director has chosen Danish actor Ulrich Thomsen to star the film.
The Face is about a man (played by Thomsen) who is fleeing through a post World War II ravaged Germany. But as he is suffering from amnesia, he doesn’t remember what, or who, he is running from. Nor does he remember why he’s wearing the stripped uniform of a concentration camp inmate.
Thomsen has also appeared in Bier’s Golden Globe-nominated In A Better World.
Films in Motion (a New Berlin-based production house) plans to shoot the English-language feature in Germany and is reportedly putting together financing on the project, budgeted at just over $9 million.
