Anton Corbijn’s adaptation of John Le Carre’s psychological novel follows German spy Gunther Bachmann as he tracks down Issa, a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. Pressured by his German and American colleagues to capture and interrogate his suspect as a Muslim terrorist, Bachmann instead asks for more time to carefully track Issa’s movements and his relationship with his German immigration lawyer, Annabel Richter. Using his secret contacts and keen skill, Bachmann uncovers a connection between a world-renowned Muslim philanthropist and a terrorist group, and devises a plan to use Issa and Annabel in a brilliant ploy to expose the scheme.

The A Company Catalogue has a new and detailed plot description of Rachel’s upcoming animation movie “The Little Prince“. The movie is an adaption of Antoine De Saint-Exupery classic, but judging on the plot description it’s going to be a new version/interpretation. Thanks to Jord for the heads up!
Plot outline: An eight-year old girl moves into a new house. Her parents, who are two workaholic-over-achievers, couldn’t be happier. Except, their beautiful new home neighbors a decrepit and decaying house lived in by a wacky old man known as the Aviator. He’s the town vagrant and self proclaimed space traveler of the world: Nobody believes him… that is, until he meets the little girl next door. Confined to a home built upon rules and plans geared towards nothing else but academic achievement, the little girl lusts to explore the stars and dream and remain a child forever. Against her parent’s wishes, the little girl befriends the Aviator who tells her of his travels through outer-space and meeting the Little Prince. After a malfunction with his plane, the Aviator ends up in the hospital, unable to travel back to see his old friend – the Little Prince. The little girl decides to fly the Aviator’s plan on an adventurous journey in search for the Little Prince … hopeful, not only to bring him back to the Aviator, but also to remind him what it is like to be a child.
You can find more details after the jump. The movie is expected to continue production until the fall of next year. No release date has been announced yet but we expected a 2015 date. It’s still unknown which character Rachel, or any of the other cast members, is going to voice.
