More on German Movie 1½ Knight

Here is another article about that German movie from Again, just roughly translated.

New kids on The block to guest star in a Til Schweiger Movie

It is currently the most celebrated return... With the announcement of the New Kids On The Block reunion after more than 14 years, the new single and a world tour (U. S. and Canada concerts sold out within 4 minutes ) are Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan & Jonathan Knight! Among other things, the band's website is getting a lot of traffic. And now there are yet more reasons to be happy: The News Kids On The Block will come to Germany in the beginning of July for the filming of "1 ½ knight" and will perform a song with Til Schweiger in a medieval club!

In fact, two of the New kids have the surname "Knight". When the group heard about Til Schweigers inquiry they were thrilled. Above all Donnie, who has a great Hollywood career, recognized the name Til Schweiger. A short telephone call between both sealed the extraordinary collaboration of the group with Til Schweiger.

Filming for the adventure comedy "1 ½ knight" started in Mid-May. It will film exclusively in Saxony-Anhalt, Bavaria and Berlin. The script comes from Oliver Ziegenbalg and Oliver Philipp. Schweiger produced it together with his long-time partner Tom Zickler, for its label "Barefoot Films/Warner Bros. Pictures

Germany brings "1 ½ knight" into the German movie theaters. Contents: The time of the Knights has amazing parallels to the present: brand armor, gecastete minstrel, Ride-ins and flextime for the serfs. The noble knight lance (Til Schweiger) and the Turkish Kleinganove and wannabe knight Erdal (Rick Kavanian) have to find the kidnapped daughter of King Gunther. (Thomas Gottschalk) to liberate and experience a Middle Ages - and the New Kids On The Block -- how it has never been seen!
