It’s a tell(er)ing future for Daniel Brühl.
The 43-year-old half-Spanish Golden Globe-nominated actor will star in Lone Scherfig’s upcoming feature The Movie Teller, according to Variety.
Brühl , who starred in Captain America: Civil War, will star alongside half-Argentine Oscar-nominated actress Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) and Spanish actor Antonio de la Torre (Marshland) in the film.
Directed by BAFTA nominee Scherfig, The Movie Teller sees Brühl star as Nansen, a European outsider who, via his restraint and diplomacy, earns the respect of the families he encounters at a Chilean mine before embarking on a relationship with a local woman, María Magnolia (played by Bejo).
Embankment is executive producing the film and has launched worlwide sales, co-repping Latin American rights with Latido Films. A Contracorriente Films’ Adolfo Blanco (“The Bookshop”), Selenium Films’ Vincent Juillerat and Andres Mardones of Al Tiro Films are producing.
Brühl, a BAFTA-nominated actor, recently reprised his Marvel role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and has appeared in the features Rush and Inglourious Basterds.
