Alicia VIkander and Elizabeth Olsen's futuristic drama, The Assessment, is scheduled to shoot in Cologne, Germany this summer.
The Assessment is set in a world destroyed by climate change. Part of society has created a parallel world for itself. Life is controlled and optimised, and the desire to have children is also not left to chance. The lives of a successful young couple are therefore put under close scrutiny by a female assessor over the course of seven days.
Per our sister site, Screeendaily, the project marks the debut feature from French filmmaker Fleur Fortuné (pictured), whose previous credits include shorts, commercials and music videos.
The futuristic drama will shoot this summer at Cologne's MMC Studios.
The script is co-written by Nell Garfath-Cox, Dave Thomas and John Donnelly.
It is a co-production between Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen’s UK-based Number 9 Films and Germany’s augenschein Filmproduktion, and has received €1m from Cologne regional film fund Filmstiftung NRW.
German distributor Capleight will release the film.
