German director Tom Tykwer, best known for writing and directing Lola Rennt (titled Lola Runs in America) has announced he will be bringing the German best-seller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer", by Patrick Suskind, to the big screen.
It was announced that Alan Rickman, Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies, will be in the cast. It was also announced that although Lord of the Rings Orlando Bloom was hoped for, British actor Ben Whishaw will now appear in the role of Jean-Baptist Grenouille, a man of the 18th century who was born with a superior sense of smell which he uses to create the world's finest perfumes.
Tykwer adapted itself the police thriller, moving the story from France to Germany. The book broke German sales records with 15 million copies sold.
