Gallenberger also co-wrote the screenplay for this picture with collaborator Torsten Wenzel.

Emma Watson has gotten increasingly busy sinceĀ Harry Potter, with such hits as This is the End and several upcoming projects, like the crime drama Regression, co-starring Ethan Hawke, set for release in August 2015.

Colonia is expected to premiere in late 2015.
