Indie director Matthias Olof Eich, who brought us Break in 2009, plans on a grand return next year with the release of his upcoming Cerusit, on which filming is currently under way.
Everything is being kept very hush-hush on this project, but from what we’ve been able to gather, it stars Aciel Martinez Pol and Patrick Jahns. For all other available info, visit the official Cerusit website and the Cerusit Facebook page, or follow the film on Twitter(@cerusit_movie).
From the Press Release
Independent film director Matthias Olof Eich has started shooting his third feature film. After the backwoods slasher Break (2009), which debuted in the UK, Australia and the United States in 2012, and an arthouse project called Rest im Glas (2011), the Oberammergau-based filmmaker continues with Cerusit – a film about the dark past of his village.
Cerusit was the code name of a WWII subterranean production hall in Oberammergau (in Bavaira, Germany), where the first jet-engined airfighter was produced, the Messerschmitt Me 262. Eich’s and co-writer Bernd Strack’s script refers to this plant, which today is located on the site of a U.S. Military Natobase.
“As children we grew up with these stories about the secret Messerschmitt Caves. And for years I had this thrilling story about it in my head. The script that Bernd and I wrote is convincing from page one to the very end. The concept of this film is unique, and by shooting in real-3D, we place a little bloody crown on its head,” says Eich.
The film will be shot from March to June 2012 with a specially developed 3D camera technology. In addition to some studio shoots, the original locations will be used as well.
Well known Break actors Esther Maaß and Patrick Jahns are in the cast as well as famous musical singer Aciel Martinez Pol. All the tension, horror and action are more powerful this time, and the humor will not miss out.
Intended primarily for the global direct-to-video markets, a limited 2D theatrical release and an additional festival tour in spring of 2013 are scheduled.
