Jeremy Irons, George MacKay head up new WWII thriller

Share this Article:

Munich is an upcoming film from Netflix, that will chart the struggles of two diplomats sent to the German capital to avert the onset of World War II.

Jeremy Irons, George Mackay and Jannis Niehwöhner will lead the cast of Munich, a period thriller set on the eve of World War II. The film is based on the Robert Harris novel and will be coming to Netflix.

MacKay (who speak to us in the pages of this month’s Film Stories magazine) and Jannis Niehwöhner (previously seen in Netflix’s Mute) play respective British and German diplomats, secretly sent to meet to try and avert the onset of war, before finding that their very lives are in danger. Irons will play the British prime minister, Neville Chamberlain.

Unsurprisingly, the meeting occurs in Munich, hence the film’s title.

Christian Schwochow (of The Crown) will direct from a script by Ben Power, who adapted the Shakespearean series, The Hollow Crown, for the BBC.

The Hollywood Reporter has also announced that Martin Wuttke, who had a small part in Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, as Adolf Hitler, will play the part of the German leader once again.

More news on this one as we have it.
