Academy Award winning Roger Christian whose past credits include films in the Star Wars and Alien franchises will sit in the director’s seat, he added. The screenplay has been written by Tibor Fonyódi from Losonczi’s idea and Géza Bereményi’s original novel.
Poet Géza Szőcs, a chief advisor to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, will be in charge of dramaturgy. The film’s planned budget is 20-25 million dollars and such international stars have been invited to appear in it as Mads Mikkelsen, Martin Freeman, Ed Harris and Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Shooting is planned to conclude in the spring of 2015. Losonczi said no state support would be used for the film.
