Munich, May 7, 2015 | Global Screen has picked up another strong genre title for its theatrical slate: NICK – OFF DUTY (WT) is a gripping action thriller starring German superstar Til Schweiger (“Inglourious Basterds”) as a tough cop struck in a race against the time to save his teenage daughter from the Russian mafia. The film will be directed by genre expert Christian Alvart (“Antibodies”, “Case 39”, “Pandorum”) and will feature a thrilling high-speed, high-stakes chase from Hamburg via Istanbul to Moscow. The stunts in the film will be delivered by Action Concept, multiple winner of the Taurus World Stunt Awards.
It is produced by Syrreal Entertainment GmbH and Barefoot Films GmbH in coproduction with Warner Bros. GmbH and NDR. Principal shooting will start in July, while delivery is set for early 2016.
“We are excited about this new production from Syrreal Entertainment”, states Julia Weber, Head of Theatrical Sales at Global Screen. “Christan Alvart is an expert in the genre, and Til Schweiger and Tom Zickler from Barefoot Films have produced some of Germany’s most successful films of all times (“Rabbit Without Ears”, “Head Full Of Honey”). NICK – OFF DUTY has universal appeal and we are looking forward to present the gripping plot and top-notch ingredients to our clients in Cannes.”
