Franka Potente has joined the cast of Romulus, My Father, an Australian adaptation of Raimond Gaitas’ memoir. Eric Bana has already signed up for the lead role.

Van Helsing’s Richard Roxburgh is directing the film, based on the script by playwright Nick Drake, which tells the story of a family emigrating from Germany to Australia in 1950.

Good casting
It's a strong central casting, especially with Eric Bana coming off his stunning turn in "Munich". A director who's a star of the utterly abysmal "Van Helsing" doesn't bode well, although he was great in "Moulin Rouge". More
