It seems an actor-director's new film behind the camera is moving forward in Germany. According to Screen Daily, Alex Winter's remake of the 1987 film The Gate will head into production in Germany at the end of the summer.

The production will shoot in MMC Studios in Cologne, Germany and the film has received over $3 million in funding from several German-based financiers like HessenInvestFilm in Frankfurt, MFG Baden-Wurttemburg out of Stutgart and Filmstiftung NFW out of Dusseldorf.

Winter, best known for his role alongside Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, will direct the remake. No release date has been set.
