The authorized biopic telling the life-story of Siegfried & Roy, who also serve as executive producers, will continue on schedule despite the recent passing of Roy Horn from complications of COVID-19 last week.
The emotional story will cover their life together and how they influenced each other to achieve world-renowned success.
Nico Hofmann and Sebastian Werninger on behalf of UFA Fiction, confirmed the script by award-winning writer/director Michael Bully Herbig is in its final stages and pre-production will begin after its completion.
The project has been in development with Siegfried & Roy and UFA for more than two years. The biopic will be distributed as a feature film in theaters and expanded to a limited series for television.
UFA CEO Nico Hofmann has been personally involved in the film’s creation and is also executive producing.
