PRODUCTION; Szász in pre-production with The Notebook

By Zsolt Gyenge

    Hungarian director János Szász is preparing for his new film, an adaptation of Le Grand Cahier (The Notebook), a novel by Agota Kristof.

    The coproduction between Hungary's Hunnia Filmstudio (www.hunniafilm.hu) and Germany's Intuit Pictures (www.intuitpictures.com) has received MEDIA funding and script development support from the Motion Picture Public Foundation of Hungary (www.mmka.hu). The film is scheduled to go into production in summer 2010.

    The international bestseller tells the story of twin brothers living in a Hungarian border village during World War II who turn to deception in order to survive.
