HOT DOG: TIL SCHWEIGER AND MATTHIAS SCHWEIGHÖFER IN NEW BUDDY COMEDY
German release date: 18. January 2018
Luke (Til Schweiger) and Theo (Matthias Schweighöfer), two Tactical Units Police Officers, could not be any more different. In HOT DOG they need to stick together to rescue Anna, the daughter of the Moldavian embassador – chaos inevitable.
Schweighöfer plays the role of inexperienced Theo, who has a genius photographic memory and Schweiger plays the impulsive tough police officer Luke. While investigating the case of missing Anna, the two must realize that the blackmailing is only the tip of the iceberg and behind the kidnapping lies a conspiracy net of much bigger dimension than originally thought. During their mission the two opposite characters develop into an unbeatable dream team. Luke and Theo are supported by their colleague and hacker Nicki (Anne Schäfer), who also tests the love-inexperienced Theo in other ways…
Torsten Künstler debuts as director in HOT DOG. Markus Nestroy is responsible for the image design.
