David Garrett’s Mister Smith boards period drama, currently in post-production.

David Garrett’s Mister Smith Entertainment has boarded international sales to Terrence Malick’s upcoming Second World War drama Radegund.

Sales are set to commence at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.

Radegund will follow the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector who refused to fight for the Nazis and was executed by them in 1943.

The film marks Malick’s return to the Second World War period following acclaimed 1998 drama The Thin Red Line.

From Malick’s screenplay, the film stars August Diehl as Franz Jägerstätter, Valerie Pachner as his wife Fani, Matthias Schoenaerts as Captain Herder and Bruno Ganz as Judge Lueben alongside Martin Wuttke, Maria Simon, Karin Neuhäuser and Alexander Fehling.

Matthias Joins Terrence Malick’s “Radegund”?

We missed this possible project before, but looks like Matthias might have joined Terrence Malick’s upcoming movie “Radegund“. Indiewire is reporting the following story:

While the biggest news surrounding Terrence Malick at the moment is that the reclusive director will be making a rare public appearance next month at the Princeton Garden Theater for a live conversation following a screening of Roberto Rossellini‘s “Journey To Italy” (tough nuts, it’s already sold out), the filmmaker is already at work on his next feature, “Radegund.” Even though his love triangle music drama “Weightless” is yet to come, cameras are rolling on WWII movie, and all we know officially so far is that “Inglourious Basterds” actor August Diehl is leading the movie, with newcomer Valerie Pachner also in the film. Well, you can add another name (and possibly more).

According to German site Blick, the always great Bruno Ganz (“Wings Of Desire“) is part cast for this tale about Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian man who opposed the Nazis, and refused to fight as a conscientious objector. He was executed by the Nazis in 1943. However, if this cast list from German industry site Crew United is accurate, the full ensemble has been revealed, and among the many names, are Matthias Schoenaerts and Jürgen Prochnow. IMDB also lists Michael Nyqvist in a role that doesn’t appear on the Crew United page, but again, none of this is official. And as we already know, Malick calls in lots of people for his movies, but they don’t always make the final cut.
