The Reader star David Kross and Germany's 'Shooting Star' Hannah Herzsprung are being lined up to appear in Juraj Herz's Habermann's Mill which is set to go into production later this year for Art Oko and KN Filmcompany.

The Second World War drama set in the Sudetenland, which will be handled internationally by Atlas International Film, also has Ben Becker and Karl Roden pencilled in for lead roles.

In addition, Atlas has picked up sales for Polish director Dariusz Gajewski's comedy Mr Kuka's Advice which is produced by Vienna-based Prisma Film - the co-producer of Panorama Special film Revanche by Goetz Spielmannn - with Lodz's Opus Film.
