The first photo has been released from Netflix’s upcoming new film adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s anti-war novel “All Quiet On The Western Front” currently in production near Prague.

Edward Berger (“Patrick Melrose”) helms the story which details a young German soldier’s terrifying experiences and distress on the western front during WWI. The project marks the first German film adaptation of the work.

Daniel Brühl, Devid Striesow, Andreas Döhler, Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Aaron Hilmer, Moritz Klaus and Edin Hasanovic co-star in the feature which began shooting in March.

Former Washington Post journalist Ian Stokell and actor/producer Lesley Paterson penned the script. The property was most famously adapted into the Oscar-winning 1930 film adaptation.

Netflix’s “All Quiet on the Western Front” is expected to premiere on the service in the second half of 2022.
