“Knight of Cups” opened earlier this year, “Weightless” still hasn’t locked a release date, and the documentary “Voyage Of Time” is a few months off. Nevertheless, that’s not stopping filmmaker Terrence Malick from setting up his next project.
“Inglourious Basterds” actor August Diehl plays Franz Jagerstatter, an Austrian man who opposed the Nazis and refused to fight as a conscientious objector – causing him to be executed by the Nazis in 1943. Axel Corti previously adapted his story on film in 1971, and in 2007 Jagerstatter was beatified and declared a martyr by Pope Benedict XVI.
Shooting will take place at Studio Babelsberg this summer.
