BAFTA-nominated actor Daniel Brühl has been cast in Lone Scherig’s The Movie Teller – adapted from Hernán Rivera Letelier’s autobiographical novel. 

Captain America: Civil War actor Daniel Brühl will star in The Movie Teller. The film, based on an autobiographical novel by Hernán Rivera Letelier, will be directed by Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig. Variety reports that Brühl’s character, Nansen, is a European outsider in a Chilean mining town. As he earns the townspeople’s respect, he begins a relationship with a local woman, played by The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo.

The woman’s daughter is a gifted storyteller, called ‘the movie teller’ by the townspeople. They are too poor to afford cinema tickets, so together they attempt to raise enough money to send the girl to the movie theatre, so she can tell them the stories of the films she has seen. It sounds like a heartwarming tale for any cinema-lover.

The Movie Teller is a Spanish, French, and Chilean co-production, and will be a Spanish-language film. It’s set to begin filming on 21st March on location in Pedro de Valdivia, in the Atacama Desert in Chile.

Daniel Brühl is known to international audiences for roles in Inglourious Basterds, Rush, and Captain America: Civil War (a role he recently reprised in limited series Falcon And The Winter Soldier). Starring with him in The Movie Teller are award-winning Spanish actor Antonio de la Torre and José Soza, an equally celebrated Chilean actor.
