Perhaps best known internationally for his part in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, the German writer-director-actor Til Schweiger returns behind the camera next month with Schutzengel (roughly translated: Guardian Angel).
The first poster and a handful of new images, along with hi-res versions of a few that have already surfaced, have now made their way online.
“A troubled former soldier works to protect an orphan who witnessed a murder from the assassins out to get her.”
Schweiger stars in the lead as the troubled former soldier, once more alongside his daughter Luna Schweiger (Keinohrhasen, or Rabbit Without Ears), and Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run).
Schweiger is directing from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Paul Maurice and Stephen Butchard (Vincent).
Schutzengel will be released by the German arm of Warner Bros. on 27th September, and as yet, there’s no word on if/when it will arrive in the UK or US. The multi-hyphenate has already announced he intends to adapt the film into English for an American remake, though, so if it doesn’t reach us now, hopefully we’ll have time to see the original in some form before the remake is made somewhere down the line. For now, enjoy this first poster, along with a handful of hi-res images, all of which you can click to enlarge.
