Roland Emmerich and his Centropolis Entertainment label are teaming with Flimmer to co-produce a screen adaptation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”.
The story follows 15-year-old Tim Walker, who is sent from London to the Austrian Alps to attend the renowned Mozart boarding school. There he he discovers a centuries-old forgotten passageway into the fantastic world of Mozart’s most famous opera.
Andrew Lowery is attached to write the screenplay for the project which German writer-director Florian Sigl and Flimmer CEO Christopher Zwickler are spearheading.
The plan is for a Christmas 2018 release and for this to be a multi-part movie that will do a direct adaptation framed by a modern-day narrative.
