Friends star Matt LeBlanc is to head the cast of All The Queen's Men, a $15m German-set comedic drama set in World War II which is being produced by Atlantic Streamline.
Bernd Eichinger's Constantin Film has taken rights in German-speaking Europe to the film which is being directed by Stephan Ruzowitsky and produced by Marco Weber, Gabrielle Kelly and Zachary Feuer. Shooting will begin on Aug 3 in Budapest and Vienna. Co-producers are Dor Film in Austria, Arri in Germany and Phoenix Film in Hungary.
Run by Weber, Santa Monica-based Atlantic Streamline produces concept-driven films under $25m and has credits including You're Dead and The 13th Floor. The company was formerly aligned with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin's Centropolis and was named Centropolis Streamline but has since parted ways.
In the film written by David Schneider and Jeff Stockwell (The Dangerous Lives Of Altar Boys), LeBlanc plays an American who leads a team of British special forces agents into Germany during the war to infiltrate a female-run Enigma factory in Berlin and bring back the decoding device that could end the war.
Leblanc was represented by UTA, while Robert Offer of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Diemer & Klein represented Atlantic Streamline.
