Angela Merkel Movie Set to Hit Cinema Screens in 2017

A film about German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who grew up in the former Communist East Germany before becoming the reunified country's first female chancellor, will hit cinema screens in 2017.
Director Walid Nakschbandi said the biopic, which has the working title 'Angela Merkel', will seek to bring the chancellor alive for audiences around the world by showing who she is both politically and privately.
He said it had not yet been decided who would play Merkel, but AVE would come up with a list of names in the coming months.
The film's release will come in a year when Germany is due to hold a federal election. A poll from last year indicated that a majority of Germans want Merkel, who remains very popular at home 10 years after taking office, to run for a fourth term.
