The film which is Richter's first film since his German thriller The Tunnel reunites Polley and Rea, who last appeared together in 1999's Guinevere. Perabo recently wrapped George & The Dragon in Luxembourg.

MDP Worldwide will be distributing and co-producing the film with VIP Medienfonds 1 and MDP's wholly-owned German entity MDP Filmproduktion GmbH. Rudy Cohen and MDP's Mark Damon will produce while Andreas Schmid and Andreas Grosch will serve as executive producers.
