Mannerheim moves to Hungarian studio

By FNE Staff
A Finnish co-production about Marshal Carl Gustav Mannerheim will move its production to Hungary, instead of earlier plans to use Lithuanian facilities.

HCC Media Group (www.hccmedia.hu) is one of two new partners on the films, along with Germany's Global United Entertainment which joined the project after the previous Danish partner pulled out. Poland's Donten & Lacroix (www.dontenlacroix.eu) and Iceland's Kisi complete the coproduction team.

Filming is set to begin in September in Hungary, with a November 2011 release. Filming will make use of the studios of HCC, which also has both production and post-production services.
