 (Berlinale Special in 2010). Co-scripted by the director with Pascal Bonitzer, his latest project's screenplay starts just as young Karl Marx finishes his PhD aged 19, then recounts his journey up until the 1848 revolution. Produced by Velvet Film (Peck’s production company), the feature film should start shooting in September 2013.
