The English-language adaptation of the beloved fantasy book “Momo” by Michael Ende, author of “The Neverending Story,” has recently announced its star-studded cast.

“Momo” follows the story of a young orphan girl who befriends everyone in her neighborhood while living in the ruins of an old Roman amphitheater. However, when a powerful corporation begins stealing people’s time, Momo and the custodian of time, Master Hora, must join forces to stop the time thieves before it’s too late. The tale explores themes of friendship, community, and the importance of time in a captivating and imaginative way.

Produced by Rat Pack FilmProduction in collaboration with Constantin Film Production and Westside Filmproduction, “Momo” is set to be distributed in German-speaking territories by Constantin. Rocket Science will handle international sales rights for the rest of the world and showcase the film at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. With support from funding sources like FFF Bavarian Filmfund, MBB Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, and FFA Federal Film Funding, the production promises to deliver a visually stunning and emotionally resonant adaptation of the beloved novel.

The English-language adaptation of “Momo” is shaping up to be a must-watch for fans of the original book and newcomers alike. With a talented cast, experienced production team, and a captivating story at its core, the film has the potential to enchant audiences and bring the timeless themes of Michael Ende’s work to life in a new and exciting way.
