Robert Schwentke is a Venus Fixer


Robert Schwentke is attached to direct the thriller Venus Fixer for New Line and Mandalay Pictures, reports Variety.

Based on a true story, the project centers on a Holocaust survivor recruited by the American military to track a serial killer on the rampage in postwar Berlin. He must partner with a German cop who had been his friend and colleague before the Nazi regime came to power.

Author J.C. Pollack, who is best known for writing espionage thrillers under the pseudonym James Elliott, penned the screenplay.
