Atlantic Overseas Pictures and EuroCo Productions are partering up on three new films. The first is the love story, Flower of the Fence; the second is the action epic, Hunyadi: The Sword of G-d.
Fenceis set around the Holocaust, and based on the story of concentration camp survivor Herman Rosenblat. The Hollywood Reporter says the film follows him from his teen years, when he falls for a girl in an adjacent camp, to his reunion with his love years after the war. Richard Dreyfuss, Maia Morgenstern, and Thomas Sangster have expressed interest in starring in the film. It's written by Harris Salomon and Matt Salzberg; production on Flower of the Fence is scheduled to begin in 2007.
Hunyadi: The Sword of G-d follows the 15th century general John Hunyadi as he defends Hungary against the Turks. Shooting is scheduled to begin in 2008.
The third film will be announced sometime next year.
