LONDON — “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson and Daniel Bruhl (“Rush”) will topline thriller “Colonia,” which will shoot in Luxembourg, Munich, Berlin and South America until the end of the year.

Pic, which is helmed by Florian Gallenberger (“John Rabe”), tells the story of Lena and Daniel, a young couple who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the south of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel.

Gallenberger and Torsten Wenzel penned the script, which is inspired by true events. Benjamin Herrmann is producing through his Majestic banner (“Desert Flower,” “John Rabe,” “Tour De Force”). Nicolas Steil will serve as co-delegate producer through Iris Productions (“Sunset Song”).

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes cinematographer Kolja Brandt, production designer Bernd Lepel, costume designer Nicole Fischnaller, makeup designers Waldemar Pokromski and Claudine Moureaud, sound recordist Carlo Thoss and editor Hansjoerg Weissbrich.

Pic is co-produced by Rat Pack Filmproduktion, in association with ProSieben and Sky, supported by FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, FFA German Federal Film Board, German Federal Film Fund (DFFF), Luxembourg Film Fund and the MEDIA program of the EU.

Watson is represented by Markham, Froggatt & Irwin (U.K.) and WME (U.S). Bruhl is represented by Players (Germany), Tavistock Wood (U.K.) and WME (U.S.).
