Following his semi-autobiographical Indie Spirit-winning breakthrough, “This is Martin Bonner,” starring Australian "Land Ho!" actor Paul Eenhoorn as a man inspired by his father, Karlovy Vary juror Chad Hartigan is sharing more details on his third feature. We drove together from the Prague airport to the festival. He told me that he's excited about scouting locations in Germany for his next feature “Morris from America,” a drama which found root during his tour across global festivals, including the Czech Republic's Karlovy Vary, with “Martin Bonner.”

The coming-of-age story will be financed by Medienboard and Sudwestrundfunk out of Germany and cast with German actors, except for his young American lead, who'll be playing "an overweight African-American child living in small-town Germany and falling in love with a local girl,” Variety reports.
