AVE has begun development of a biopic about Germany’s first female Chancellor Angela Merkel.
No word yet on who will play the current German leader in the international co-production which has already scored much interest around the globe. Journalist Dirk Kurbjuweit, who penned two books about Merkel, has penned the screenplay.
Walid Nakschbandi will produce and a release is planned for 2017, just in time for Germany’s elections. Early polls suggest Merkel will easily win a fourth term in office.
