The fans of "Manta Manta" are eagerly awaiting this date: On March 30th, the second part of the legendary action comedy by Til Schweiger (59) will be in the cinemas. The actor posted the new film poster on Instagram.
"3-2-1-GO! Here's the main poster for 'Manta Manta: Second Part'," he wrote. "Don't forget: The big reunion with Bertie, Uschi
In addition to Schweiger, the original stars of the first part, Tina Ruland (56) and Michael Kessler (55), also play in the film. Til Schweiger's daughters Luna (26) and Emma Tiger (20) are also there.
Schweiger had planned the sequel to his 1991 cult film more than ten years ago, but the sudden death of producer Bernd Eichinger (1949-2011) delayed the project. In 2018, Schweiger announced that he had proposed buying the rights from the production company Constantin Film, but this had been rejected. The following year, Constantin Film announced that it was working on a concept and screenplay. In May 2022, "Manta Manta 2" was officially announced, and filming began shortly thereafter.
