You already tricked me into doing it for the trailer, you sick bastards!
A timely reminder of problems created by splitting a country in two, this highly-rated German drama, centred on a spy for the East German Stasi, kicks off Channel 4’s new foreign language project – Walter Presents, available initially on Channel 4.
German helmer Lexi Alexander has come on board to direct “Crossface,” a biopic about late wresting champ Chris Benoit. Alexander will direct from a script by Jake Goldberger and Sarah Coulter.
Alexander, best known for directing “Punisher: War Zone,” received an Academy Award nomination for her short film “Johnny Flynton.” Her film “Green Street Hooligans,” starring Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam, won South by Southwest’s best of fest and a special jury awards in 2005.
She has also directed episodes of the TV series “Limitless,” “Supergirl,” and “Arrow.” “I was pretty certain I’d stay in TV rather than returning to the feature world, because the material just seems so much better in TV, especially in drama, but then ‘Crossface’ came my way,” Alexander said.
It’s a hard one to guess because National Geographic seems to number some of the seasons differently to its native Canada, and previous seasons have not aired consistently.
There’s some confusion over the season numbering in the UK compared to the US, but the next ‘unaired in the UK’ season they are calling season 14 here (i believe it’s called season 15 in the US).
