Veteran producer Konstantin Thoeren is exiting his post as managing director of Ufa International Film & TV Produktion at the end of this week.

Thoeren told ScreenDaily that he will now concentrate on producing through his own outfit Patrola Films Inc, based in Munich and Los Angeles, although he will serve as an adviser for projects which have been developed at Ufa International.

Last year Thoeren brought Ufa International together with Promark subsidiary The Enemy Films UK and Luxembourg's Carousel Picture Company to produce Tom Kinninmont's $5m spy thriller The Enemy, starring Roger Moore, Tom Conti, Luke Perry and Horst Buchholz.
