Just a couple months ago we learned that Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson would team with Rush star Daniel Bruhl for the thriller Colonia, unfolding in the midst of the Chilean military coup of 1973. Well, production is already underway on the film from director Florian Gallenberger (Honolulu and City of War: The Story of John Rabe) and a fist look photo has just been released, revealing that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and foreign Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy star Michael Nyqvist also stars in the film. In the photo, he seems angry and threatening Watson in a church. Look now!
Here's the first photo from Florian Gallenberger's Colonia straight from Majestic:
Colonia is directed by Florian Gallenberger (Academy Award winner for Best Short Film in 2000) from a script he co-wrote with Torsten Wenzel. The film tells the story of Lena and Daniel (Emma Watson and Daniel Bruhl), a young couple entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist) but is actually a place nobody ever escaped from. The film is slated to arrive in October of 2015.
