Match Factory boards fresh take on Austrian Empress ‘Sisi’

Frauke Finsterwalder to begin shooting period drama in autumn 2020.

The Match Factory is to handle international sales on Frauke Finsterwalder’s Sisi – Kaiserin Elisabeth (working title), which promises to cast new light on the 19th century Empress of Austria.

Although it will tell the story of Elisabeth, who was nicknamed Sisi and would go on to become Queen of Hungary, the film will be told from the perspective of her lady-in-waiting, Irma.

Produced by Munich-based Walker+Worm Film, it will shoot on location in Germany, Switzerland, Ireland and Morocco from autumn 2020.

Finsterwalder has co-written the screenplay with her husband, the bestselling author Christian Kracht.
