Berlin Nobody: Eric Bana And Kiernan Shipka To Star In Thriller

Erica Bana and Kiernan Shipka have signed up to star in the upcoming thriller Berlin Nobody.

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Eric Bana and Kiernan Shipka have signed up to star in the upcoming thriller Berlin Nobody.

.

The Berlin-set film will follow American social psychologist Ben Monroe, who investigates a local cult connected to a disturbing event. While he immerses himself into his work, his rebellious teenage daughter, Mazzy, gets involved with a mysterious local boy, who introduces her to the city’s underground party scene. As these two worlds head towards an intersection, Mazzy finds herself in great danger and Ben will need to race against the clock to save her.

.

Erica Bana (whose recent credits include The Dry and The Orchard) will be playing the role of Ben, while Kiernan Shipka (whose recent credits include Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Treat) will be playing the role of Mazzy. The film hails from writer-director Jordan Scott, with the script inspired by Nicholas Hogg’s 2015 novel Tokyo.

.

Scott Free’s Ridley Scott and Michael Pruss are producing the project alongside Aughenschein’s Jonas Katzenstein and Maximilian Leo, and Georgina Pope. Augenschein’s Jonathan Saubach will executive produce.

Ridley Scott released a statement saying:

I’m delighted to be working with our friends and partners at Augenschein and Protagonist on this fantastic thriller set in the great city of Berlin. We couldn’t be more excited to bring this timely story to life. I’m also thrilled to be collaborating again with Eric Bana as well as the wonderful Kiernan Shipka. Scott Free is committed to bold, original films and filmmaking and Berlin Nobody couldn’t be a better example of that.

.

Augenschein released a statement saying:

We are thrilled by Jordan’s vision as it aligns perfectly with our director-driven approach. And of course, it’s an honour to be collaborating with the legendary Ridley, and with Michael who has been an incredible partner. Hot off the heels of The Dive, we are also thrilled to be launching another project with George, Janina and the whole Protagonist team.

.

George Hamilton, Chief Commercial Officer at Protagonist Pictures, also released a statement saying:

Berlin Nobody is the ultimate package – a tense and taut psychological thriller produced by two companies at the top of their game, helmed by a new and exciting visionary director, Jordan, and led by the fiercely talented Eric and Kiernan. We can’t wait to introduce this project to distributors around the world, in partnership with Jonathan Saubach and our friends at Augenschein.

Protagonist and Augenschein will be launching sales for Berlin Nobody at the virtual European Film Market (EFM) next month.
