To Schweiger (55), in the "misguided" theatrical release of the American version of "honey in the head", sees his greatest career flip so far. "It was the low point in my previous artistic work," said the German actor and director of the "Bild" newspaper. Alzheimer's drama "Head Full of Honey" with Nick Nolte (77) was torn apart by several US media a month ago.

For the 55-year-old, 2018 was still positive. With British actress Francesca Dutton (32), Schweiger has a new wife on his side. "We'll definitely make a movie together. She learns German with an app." But he's not thinking about having children together. "It would be a bit fast."

For the new year, the filmmaker is planning a new "crime scene" from Hamburg, which is likely to fly in 2020. The film begins in March, the book writes Eoin Moore ("Police Call 110"). Schweiger expects a new start. Above all, the many action scenes in the beginning had frightened many spectators in recent episodes. "If we let it burst again, just at the end, if no one can switch away," Schweiger explained.
