“The Physician” helmer Philipp Stolzl and writer Jan Berger are re-teaming for a film about German magicians turned Las Vegas performers Siegfried & Roy at UFA Fiction.
Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Uwe Horn were a Las Vegas institution who regularly performed at the Mirage Resort and Casino for fourteen years before an on-stage tiger attack in 2003 brought a sudden end to their careers. Roy was left partially paralyzed by the attack.
Nico Hofmann will produce while Siegfried and Roy themselves will serve as executive producers alongside Sebastian Werninger and Jan Mewes. Pixomondo (“Game of Thrones,” “The Walking Dead”) will provide the visual effects.
