Marjane Satrapi’s new film The Voices has started shooting in Germany and a big screen adaptation of Shaun the Sheep will be made.

Reynolds, Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick star in Marjane Satrapi’s latest production The Voices, about an ordinary bathtub factory worker whose relationship with a woman from accounting takes a sudden, deadly turn. Hearing voices from his good dog and evil cat, he begins a fantastic journey towards salvation.

The US-German co-production is currently shooting at Berlin’s Studio Babelsberg, which is also co-producing alongside 1984 Private Defense Contractors and Mandalay Vision.

The story is based on the screenplay by Michael R. Perry. Ascot Elite will release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
