[Movies] Production Begins On A Hologram For The King
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.06.2014



Coming Soon reports that production has started today in Morocco on the comedic drama A Hologram for the King. The film is being directed by Tom Tykwer (Cloud Atlas, Perfume), who adapted the script from the novel by Dave Eggers. It stars Tom Hanks, Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Omar Elba (Intelligence), Tracey Fairaway (Enough Said), David Menkin (Zero Dark Thirty) and Tom Skerritt (Ted, Top Gun).

Here's a synopsis: The story takes place far away from the recession-weary USA, as an up-and-coming Saudi Arabian city provides the backdrop for foundering American businessman Alan Clay's (Hanks) last-ditch effort to stave off bankruptcy, pay his daughter's college fees, and finally accomplish something big. A Hologram for the King is a gentle, crazy, wistful ballad recounting the journey of a man, who has lost almost everything, to a country that requires him to rise to completely unknown challenges and that answers old questions in new and unexpected ways.

Shooting will happen in Morocco and Germany until June. X Verleih will distribute in Germany. It is produced by Uwe Schott and Stefan Arndt of X Filme Creative Pool, Arcadiy Golubovich and Timothy D. O'Hair of Primeridian, and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman of Playtone in Association with Silver Reel Entertainment and Fábrica de Cine. Eggers, Steven Shareshian of Playtone, Claudia Bluemhuber of Silver Reel, Gaston Pavlovich of Fabrica de Cine, and Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel of Lotus International will executive produce.
