The Lives Of Others star Martina Gedeck joins cast of Julia Von Heinz’s Ich Bin Dann Mal Weg (I’m On My Way).

The Lives of Others star Martina Gedeck will join the cast of Julia Von Heinz’s upcoming Spain-set comedy Ich Bin Dann Mal Weg (literal translation: I’m On My Way)

The acclaimed German actress, here in Jerusalem on the Israeli Feature Film Jury, will star alongside Devid Striesow in the cast of the UFA and Warner Bros Germany production, adapted by Jane Ainscough and Christoph Silber from Hape Kerkeling’s best-selling comedic book about a man’s pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

Shooting is due to take place later this summer on the German-language feature.

Gedeck is then due to star alongside Thomas Kretschmann in Arsen A Ostojic’s Second World War drama Man In The Box about an Austrian family who take a Jewish doctor into hiding.

Also on the cards for the German actress is a renewed collaboration with The Wall director Julian Pölsler on We Murder Stella, an adaptation of The Wall writer Marlen Haushofer’s novella, about the death of a 19-year-old girl as told by the 40-year-old woman whose family took the teenager in before her death.
