Alex Heineman & Andrew Rona are also co-producing via The Picture Company.

Garret Levitz of Free Association will pen the script. No director is yet attached for the new feature project.

The original acclaimed German film follows the story of a young girl with a traumatic past who is constantly moving from one foster home to another because of her aggressive behavior, therefore labeled a “system crasher”. She then finds her life changing when she forms an unlikely bond with her caring but tough anger-management coach who helps her find peace by reconnecting her with nature and also nurturing her passion for boxing. The 2019 film became a commercial hit throughout Europe and won several German Film Awards including Best Picture.

The upcoming project is the third film as part of MGM’s overall deal with Free Association, which also includes recently released film Dog starring and co-directed by Channing Tatum, as well as the upcoming Pussy Island that stars Channing Tatum with Zoe Kravitz’s directorial debut. Channing Tatum will star next in The Lost City alongside Sandra Bullock.
