Match Factory picks up Tykwer’s Three
Tom Tykwer’s new project, Three, finished shooting last week and was immediately added to international seller The Match Factory’s catalogue.
The film takes a mature look at the lives of Berliners of Tykwer’s generation via an unusual love triangle (skilfully portrayed by Sophie Rois, Devid Striesow and Sebastian Schipper). It represents a return home for the director on many levels, including thematic and linguistic (after his English-language movies Perfume: The Story of a Murderer [+see also:
film profile] and The International [+see also:
film profile]), as well as in production terms, for Tykwer reunites on Three with his partner Stefan Arndt and their production company X Filme after ten years (see news).
Arndt naturally wanted the film to be handled by his longstanding collaborator Michael Weber, of The Match Factory, with whom he has already developed (for titles such as Goodbye Lenin! [+see also:
interview: Wolfgang Becker
film profile] and Run Lola Run) what he refers to as the "X Filme international sales model".
Weber is convinced that Three will attract a lot of international interest and enjoy a career comparable to that of Run Lola Run. He has already started negotiating the rights for several territories.
X Verleih will launch the film in Germany next autumn.
