Directed by Edward Berger (“Patrick Melrose”), the film details a young German soldier’s terrifying experiences and distress on the western front during WWI.
The cast includes Daniel Brühl, Devid Striesow and Andreas Döhler, and joining them are Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Aaron Hilmer, Moritz Klaus and Edin Hasanovic.
The film is produced by Malte Grunert of Amusement Park on behalf of Netflix.
Berger said: “This German world bestseller is able to convey the inhuman terror of war perhaps more impressively than any other literary work. For me, creating its first German film adaptation is one of the most exciting challenges of all.”
“We are beyond proud that Edward Berger will bring this story with such a great cast to life again for Netflix,” added Sasha Bühler, director, international film, Netflix.
“All Quiet on the Western Front” is expected to be seen in the second half of 2022.
