Where might one scoop up a copy of this book?  For that matter, is it in English?  The title appears to be in German.

Here's a little synopsis about the movie and as soon as I read the paragraph about Pastor Wiliiam I KNEW that was Michael's part!  From actors comfort -

 

BLISSESTRASSE
NON-UNION FEATURE
PAY RATE: Competitive Pay + Per Diem, Transportation, Housing, Meals, DVD copy of film.

Blissestrasse, an edgy thriller, tells the story of Harris Reynolds, a 21 yr old American who tries to escape his troubles by joining a Christian Fundamentalist Mission in Berlin. Pastor William, a fanatically devout but also completely demented preacher who is pathologically homophobic, leads the mission. The story eventually reveals what lies beneath the surface of Pastor William, which leads all of the characters deep into conflict. At the same time, a strange and very modern romance develops between Harris and Rodney – a 19 year-old firebrand from Anaheim, whose parents have sent her on the mission to Berlin to remove her from temptations back home.

PASTOR WILLIAM: CAST – MICHAEL MCMANUS

SEEKING HARRIS: Male. Harris is a bright, attractive, skinny 20 year-old from a broken home in the Maryland suburbs of Washington D.C. His mother is an ex-hippie alcoholic. His father died of lung cancer when he was eighteen. Harris”s tough life got a lot worse when he was arrested for selling his father”s Dilaudid (type of morphine) at his high school. Luckily, he managed to get his long prison sentence stayed by pretending to be “saved.” Finding it difficult to keep up his false life in a Christian College, Harris volunteers to join an American Christian Mission in Berlin. We see Harris as kind of conventional, white middle class. There is a lot of flexibility in how he looks. But he should be European stock and most importantly – charismatic. He has a rugged look to him, and looks like he”d have a mechanical ability..like fixing motorcycles. Good voice, as he is the voice of the film.
(Shoots: 6 wks) This role has some nudity.

I can hardly wait! Sounds like an intense story line and Michael would be PERFECT for Pastor William.:bounce_pinka:

Thank you so much for the info...anxiously looking forward to it...what happened to the days when we had a great selection of sci-fi?  It seems like everything lately is this vampire/romance crap!  Don't get me wrong, love vampires, but come on...

FM some one has put the wrong thing on the sci-fi channel again, or is it Alien's wrestling with each other and you've just not come to that part yet Angel!

Rolf Kanies has a part in Paul's movie as well and he's filming with Michael in Berlin. I hope the movie has international distribution, because I'm definitely buying it!
