Eric Bana (Munich) and Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina) are set to star in the Ridley Scott-produced thriller Berlin Nobody, which will be written and directed by Jordan Scott (Cracks), based on Nicholas Hogg‘s 2015 novel, Tokyo.
The film revolves around American social psychologist Ben Monroe who investigates a local cult connected to a disturbing event. While he immerses himself into his work, his rebellious teenage daughter Mazzy gets involved with a mysterious local boy, who introduces her to the city’s underground party scene.
As these two worlds head towards an intersection, Mazzy finds herself in great danger, and Ben will need to race against the clock to save her. Scott’s Scott Free Productions will produce the film, which will be put up for bid at the virtual European Film Market next month. He said in a statement:
“I’m delighted to be working with our friends and partners at Augenschein and Protagonist on this fantastic thriller set in the great city of Berlin. We couldn’t be more excited to bring this timely story to life.
I’m also thrilled to be collaborating again with Eric Bana as well as the wonderful Kiernan Shipka. Scott Free is committed to bold, original films and filmmaking and Berlin Nobody couldn’t be a better example of that.”
Scott and Bana previously worked together on Black Hawk Down. The actor was recently seen leading another thriller – Australian mystery The Dry.
Shipka had a supporting role in Mad Men and was most recently the lead of Netflix’s surprisingly cancelled Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. She’ll next be seen in Roku’s Swimming With Sharks and HBO’s The White House Plumbers.
Berlin Nobody will begin shooting in September.
