Majestic has announced that principal photography has begun on the Florian Gallenberger-directed thriller “Colonia”.
“Harry Potter” actress Emma Watson will star alongside “Rush” actor Daniel Bruhl in the story which will be shot in Luxembourg, Munich, Berlin and South America through to the end of the year.
The story follows a young couple who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. He is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and she tracks him to a sealed off area called Colonia Dignidad – a place posing as a charitable mission but is actually an inescapable cult.
Gallenberger and Torsten Wenzel penned the script which is inspired by true events.
