Elyas M’Barek and Jonas Nay will play the leading roles in Michael Bully Herbig’s media satire “1000 Linien”. The film is inspired by Juan Moreno’s book about the counterfeiting scandal at “Spiegel”. As the production company Ufa Fiction announced on Monday, the shooting will take place this summer in Munich, Berlin, Hamburg and Spain.

The production company had already secured the rights to Moreno’s book in spring 2019. A “modern story of impostors as media satire” is planned. Director Herbig said: “Similarities to untrue events could happen by chance. The facts will certainly be twisted so that it is correct in the end! (Not traveling after dictation, due to lockdown). “

Jonas Nay (“Germany 83”) plays Lars Bogenius in the film, the undisputed star of a major German news magazine. His colleague named Romero is played by Elyas M’Barek (“Fack ju Göhte”). He discovers inconsistencies in the award-winning reports by Bogenius. With his revelations he triggers one of the biggest German press scandals, so it is said about the content of the film.

The background is a scandal at “Spiegel”, which the latter made public at the end of 2018.
