Vincent Wants to Sea [+see also:
film profile] by Ralf Huettner, a small German sensation in 2010 produced by the Munich-based company Olga Film and seen by more than 1.1 million spectators, brought actor Florian David Fitz considerable praise for his performance in the role of a young man with Tourette’s syndrome who heads for the sea with his friends and the ashes of his mother. The screenplay of this moving road movie, also written by Fitz, will give American director Gren Wells the opportunity to make her debut behind the camera.
The screenplay of the American remake of Vincent Wants to Sea, entitled The Road Within, has been written by Wells herself. The main role has been given to young Irish actor Robert Sheehan, who will be surrounded by Zoë Kravitz and Dev Patel. Filming will take place this summer.
