Baader Duo Seek “Minute of Silence”

“The Baader Meinhof Complex” director Uli Edel and writer-producer Bernd Eichinger (“Downfall,” “Perfume”) are reteaming for “Schweigeminute” (A Minute of Silence) for Constantin Film reports Variety.

The adaptation of Siefried Lenz’s bestselling novel, set during the 1950s on Germany’s scenic Baltic coast, will tell the bittersweet story of a summer love affair between a high school English teacher and one of her students.

Eichinger, who’s penning the adaptation, hopes to start production on the film this summer on location in northern Germany for a 2010 release.
