Starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick

THE VOICES, directed by Academy Award-nominated Marjane Satrapi (PERSEPOLIS), began principal photography last week in Berlin, Germany.

The cast of THE VOICES includes Ryan Reynolds (GREEN LANTERN), Gemma Arterton (HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS), Jacki Weaver (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) and Anna Kendrick (UP IN THE AIR). The psychological thriller is written by Michael R. Perry (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2).

Reynolds plays Jerry, a bathtub factory worker whose relationship with a colleague from accounting takes a sudden, deadly turn. Hearing voices from his good dog and evil cat, Jerry begins a fantastic journey toward salvation.

THE VOICES is a co-production between Mandalay Vision, 1984 Private Defense Contractors, Vertigo Entertainment and Germany’s Studio Babelsberg. 1984 Private Defense Contractors’ Adi Shankar and Spencer Silna are producing with Mandalay Vision’s Matthew Rhodes and Vertigo’s Roy Lee. Charlie Woebcken, Christoph Fisser and Henning Molfenter from Studio Babelsberg serve as executive producers together with Adam Stone and Cathy Schulman from Mandalay.

Principal photography will take place at Studio Babelsberg and on location in Berlin and Brandenburg. Ascot Elite will handle the distribution in Germany.

THE VOICES is Satrapi’s second collaboration with Studio Babelsberg after the critically acclaimed CHICKEN WITH PLUMS.
