Sony Pictures Classics has picked up the rights to the German drama, The Counterfeiters.
The film is the true story about a money-manufacturing operation set up by the Nazis. The Hollywood Reporter adds it's from writer-director Stefan Ruzowitzky, which last week, received seven Lola nominations, including best feature. The film stars Karl Markovics, who plays the head of a counterfeiting operation, and David Striesow, who plays the superintendent who arrests Markovics' character and then puts him in charge of an effort to produce fake foreign currency.
No release date has been set for The Counterfeiters.
