Martin Landau, Dean Norris, Bruno Ganz, Heinz Lieven and Gunter Lamprecht also will star in the film.

From an original screenplay by Benjamin August, Remember is produced by Serendipity Point Films in association with Distant Horizon, Detalle Films, Telefilm Canada and Egoli Tossell. It is produced by Robert Lantos and Ari Lantos, with Mark Musselman and Anant Singh executive producing.
