StudioCanal’s German unit Kinowelt has boarded its first three German films as part of its mandate to acquire and produce local language product. One of the film is Stefan Ruzowitzky’s (Anatomie, Anatomie 2) thriller Braincopy which is being produced by Claussen+Wobke+Putz for German-speaking rights. Braincopy is the story of a scientist who discovers a formula to allow old and sick people to transfer their brains onto young and healthy bodies. It immediately reminded me of the “Tales from the Crypt” episode directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger called “The Switch” (watch it below). Ruzowitzky is also attached to direct The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a new spin on the Dracula mytho.
