DanRad To Star In All Quiet On The Western Front

| Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel Radcliffe


This could be good!

Daniel Radcliffe will be starring in an adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's novel All Quiet On The Western Front as main character Paul Baumer, a young German soldier.

The book has been adapted before and the 1930 version even won an Oscar for Best Picture!

The movie will begin shooting in spring 2012 after DanRad finishes his run on Broadway in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

We think he's going to have a long career ahead of him!

    Good. He's a talented actor. He deserves a lasting career.

    This is the third movie - John Boy Walton played Paul in the 70's version. This is a great idea though!!

    If it's not going to be a TV movie, why use a CBS backdroop shot of him when there's probably thousands of other pics to choose from? Mario, do you need to learn blogging 101 again?

    this is genuinely one of my favourite books and i hope he does it justice. i have faith in him.

    He better do an accent, cause after all the brilliance of Inglourious Basterds, i really don't want to see British playing German soldiers like they always did in the early film days. Well, unless the Brit is pretending for Operation Kino…

    All Quiet On The Western Front is one of my favorite books in terms of message/story. The other movies were good. Hope this one gets even better, but I'm not sure about that…

    Thank goodness people are turning their attention back to World War I, the Great War, the War to End All Wars.
    WWII has been mined dozens of times over. Let's get back to the basics.
    And, yeah, I love those Doughboy uniforms.

    I love this book and I love the 1930's movie. This should NOT be remade. By anyone. Ever. No offence to Daniel, but I don't think any actor of this day and age could do justice to the character. This book is definately too important for people to forget about but there is no way that this should be turned into 'another hollywood blockbuster'

    SWEEET!!!! I can't wait!! He's perfect for this role!

    Awesome. Dan deserves a long career ahead of him. He's one of the few quality actors of his age group.

    He's already had practice, did anyone see 'My Boy Jack' with Kim Katrall, where DanRad played the son of Rudyard Kipling who was sent to war?
    But sorry, I love the book dearly and we don't need another modern butchering of a heartfelt classic.

    i had to read it for my history class.

    the movie was boring too. (the old version)
