Since 2014, The Amazing Film Company have been focusing on developing, producing and exploiting international cinema and TV productions across all genres from elaborate screen adaptations of classics and bestsellers, to comedies and entertaining family movies, to political and sophisticated cinematic dramas.
The company was founded by Thomas Peter Friedl, longtime member of the Executive Board of Constantin Film AG and former CEO of UFA Cinema and X – Filme creative pool founder and CEO Stefan Arndt.
The most recent productions include the feature thriller COLD HELL - directed by Academy Award-winner Stefan Ruzowitzky (ANATOMY, THE COUNTERFEITERS). The feature thriller-series INTRIGO, in co-production with Enderby Entertainment, directed by Daniel Alfredson (THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE). The trilogy includes the movies DEATH OF AN AUTHOR starring Sir Ben Kingsley and Benno Fürmann, SAMARIA and DEAR AGNES, and is based on the million bestselling novels by Hakan Nesser. Or the romantic feature comedy RATE YOUR DATE (directed by David Dietl). A modern, cheeky comedy that unites the most interesting and impressive young actors in Germany: Alicia von Rittberg, Marc Benjamin, Edin Hasanovic and Nilam Farooq.
Other features-film projects in preparation are - among others - A YEAR IN THE MERDE, based on Stephen Clarke's international bestseller, the romantic comedy BALANCING ACT (AT), inspired by the novel "Surf Mama" by Wilma Johnson or FEAR OF FLYING, based on the worldwide bestseller by Erica Jong.
