Netflix‘s latest spy thriller Munich has begun production in Germany and will shoot in the UK. The film is set for a 2021 release.
Munich stars Jeremy Irons (Neville Chamberlain), George MacKay (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).
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 center 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?
“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,” said Harris.
Munich is directed by Christian Schwochow (The Crown, Bad Banks) from a script penned by Ben Power (The Lehman Trilogy, The Hollow Crown). Andrew Eaton (The Crown) and Turbine Studios are producing.
