Los Angeles, June 21st 2016. “It’s an honor to be part of the TV-series “Black Tiger”. I have been fascinated with comics and comic screen adaptions ever since”, explains actress and producer Rebekka Mueller (http://www.rebekkamueller.de/home-en.html) . Rebekka Mueller belongs to the top five up-and-coming German actors mainly working in international productions.
She will be playing the successful business woman, human rights activist and upcoming mayoral candidate Mareike Hofmeister in the main cast of the upcoming martial arts action series. More already confirmed cast members so far will be Robin Shou (Mortal Kombat), Angela Fong (former WWE Diva), Rico E. Anderson (Star Trek: Renegades) and Rap legend Kurtis Blow. “I’m fascinated by the story of Black Tiger as the comic deals with different nationalities and ethnic groups. I think today it is more important than ever to make clear that we are one people that shall all be created equal no matter what skin color or religion we may have”.
Beyond Time Inc (http://www.beyondtimecomics.com) presented the short film “Black Tiger: Hunter Hunted” that is based on the corresponding comic books. The film was screened on numerous film festivals and won the "Spirit of Comic Con Award" (Wizard World Atlanta). Rebekka Mueller met the creators John and Priscilla Hervey on a last year’s Comic Con near Los Angeles for an early addition. “I was so fascinated by the story of ‘Black Tiger’ that I also wanted to be a part of the creation as junior co-producer and agent to connect with the German film and TV market and add an international flair to the show”.
A cinematographic chamber play on love and loss
Currently she is preparing her first cinematographic chamber play as junior producer and actress in co-operation with film and economy companies from Cologne, Germany. “Lieben und Leben lassen” (“Love and let live”) deals with the strong emotions between two women sharing a cell in a women’s prison. The filming is scheduled for July. Rebekka Mueller founded her own production company Salem W. Productions.
360° degree films as a new marketing trend
