As actor and filmmaker Til Schweiger is not only successful in Germany – also in Hollywood, the 55-year-old could name. But his project fails with a crash on the US market. A painful experience.
Til Schweiger sees his biggest ever career defeat in the "misguided" theatrical release of the American version of "Honey in the Head". "It was the low point of my previous artistic work," the actor and director of the "Bild" newspaper said. Alzheimer's drama "Head Full of Honey" with Nick Nolte was torn apart by several US media a month ago. It would come in March in German cinemas.
For the 55-year-old, 2018 was still positive. With British actress Francesca Dutton, Schweiger has a new wife on his side. "We will definitely make a movie together, she learns German with an app." But he is not thinking of 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.
