Netflix has started the production for the spy-thriller film ‘Munich.’ Starring Jeremy Irons in the leading role, the movie has started filming in Germany, and it is slated to shoot in the UK later. Netflix will release the Munich in 2021.
Based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris. It is Autumn 1938 and Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution. With the pressure building, Hugh Legat, British civil servant, and Paul von Hartmann, German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency Conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the centre of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger. With the whole world watching, can war be averted and, if so, at what cost?
Christian Schwochow (The Crown, Bad Banks) is directing the film from the screenplay written by Ben Power (The Lehman Trilogy, The Hollow Crown).
Robert Harris added: “It’s great to see an actor of Jeremy Irons’s stature playing Neville Chamberlain. This will be the first time a major movie has gone beyond the cult of Winston Churchill and tried to show Chamberlain in a more sympathetic light.”
Full cast includes Jeremy Irons (Neville Chamberlain), George McKay (Hugh Legat), Jannis Niehwöhner (Paul Hartman), Sandra Hüller (Helen Winter), Liv Lisa Fries (Lenya), August Diehl, (Franz Sauer), Erin Doherty (Pamela Legat), Martin Wuttke (Adolf Hitler).
Andrew Eaton is producing the film through his production Turbine Studios.
