An upcoming TV adaptation of the best-selling novel Das Boot has just finished shooting and we have two initial images from the production to share.
Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Tom Wlaschiha (Game Of Thrones), Lizzy Caplan (Masters Of Sex), Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men) and James D’Arcy (Marvel’s Agent Carter) lead the cast of the eight-parter, which is set for screens soon.
Variety reports that the new version is set in the fall of 1942, months after Wolfgang Petersen’s 1981 movie ended. The tide is turning against the German war effort after the Allies solve the Enigma code and opposition to the Nazis intensifies. It tells dual stories: there is the journey of the U-boat, and the story of the Resistance movement in La Rochelle. They also add that the multilingual series was filmed in German, French and English and is a production of Bavaria Fiction, Sky Deutschland, and Sonar Entertainment.
Take your first look at the $32 million production above and below. Expect the series to air on Sky in late-2018.
