THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2

The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise. 

The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch (Minions) and once again be directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me series, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax).

MACKIE MESSER - BRECHTS DREIGROSCHENFILM

„Die Dreigroschenoper“, wie man sie noch nie gesehen hat: anspielungsreich, überbordend musikalisch und frech. Joachim A. Lang („George“, „Brecht – Die Kunst zu leben") interpretiert in seinem Kinofilmdebüt den Welterfolg von Brecht und Weill völlig neu. In einem fulminanten und fiebrigen filmischen Kraftakt lässt Lang Realität und Fiktion verschmelzen, wechselt fließend zwischen Brechts Kampf gegen die Filmindustrie und dessen Verfilmung der „Dreigroschenoper“, wie es sie niemals gab und sie hier vor den Augen des Publikums dennoch entsteht.
