Actor and producer Matthias Schweighöfer, known from films like “The Swimmers”, “Army of Thieves” or “100 Things”, has had the opportunity to get a taste of Hollywood a few times. The German has acted in countless German-language films and made the leap into the international film business a few years ago.
Secret film project in Los Angeles
He has been in Los Angeles for more than two weeks, where he is currently in front of the camera for a new, as yet secret, film project. So far, Schweighöfer has given his fans on social networks some brief insights into his everyday life on site. Now he finally reveals on Instagram which project it is. He has landed a role in the Netflix film Family Leave and will be starring alongside Hollywood star Jennifer Garner.
Schweighöfer writes about a joint photo with the actress: “Now I can finally reveal why I’m here, among other things: Super proud to be able to shoot #FAMILYLEAVE with this fantastic actress. Finally I’m able to tell you why I’m here: Super proud to shoot together with this amazing actress @jennifer.garner Greetings to you lovely people from Los Angeles!”
Ed Helms (“Hangover”), Rita Moreno (“West Side Story”) and Emma Myers (“Wednesday”) will also act alongside the German actor.
Superstar Jennifer Garner has also given her fans a first glimpse into film production. The actress posted a short video from the set, but Schweighöfer wasn’t on it yet.
It is not yet known when the film will be available on Netflix. According to initial estimates, “Family Leave” will flicker across screens in autumn 2023.
