Mephisto Renews His Deal in ‘Faust’

Oskar Roehler is breathing new life into the classic story of Faust as the helmer will direct the pic for Tele Muenchen Group and its production subsid Clasart. Moritz Bleibtreu (The Baader Meinhof Complex) is set to play Mephisto, the only part so far cast in the production. The idea behind Faust is that Mephisto has a bet with an angel that he can corrupt a righteous man’s soul. If he succeeds, the Devil will win dominion over earth. High-profile cinematic adaptations of the German legend include F.W. Murnau’s 1926 film (you can watch it below!) and Peter Gorski’s 1960 version, which starred Gustav Gruendgens (whose own career was the basis for Klaus Mann’s novel “Mephisto” and Istvan Szabo’s 1981 Oscar-winning adaptation, starring Klaus Maria Brandauer).
