Filming has begun on a movie dealing with the spectacular life of German boxing legend Max Schmeling. The movie will be directed by Uwe Boll (Postal, Swords Of The King) and will be in theaters in April 2010.
German boxing star Henry Maske will portray Schmeling in the film.
Swiss rockers Gotthard will be featured on the soundtrack with a brand new song from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled album, due for release on September 4th.
“A movie like this needs a strong rock song”, Uwe Boll explains. “The music by Gotthard perfectly fits. When I first heard their songs, I was immediately convinced.”
A music video for the song featured on the soundtrack will be filmed in the same style as the movie. It will be shot in 35mm, which is normally reserved for feature films.
The song and video, in which you will see the first scenes from the movie – will be introduced with the release of the new album in September, as well as on the band’s double headlining tour through Germany with EUROPE.
As previously reported, Nuclear Blast will release Gotthard’s new album on September 4th. In advance of the album release, a digital single will be available on August 14th.
