Mimi Leder is applying her talent for showing the gravitas that surrounds blowin’ stuff up to a new project. The Peacemaker and Deep Impact helmer will direct an adaptation of All Quiet On The Western Front. The WWI novel was previously adapted and went on to Oscar glory but that was before there was color film so fuck it.

The new All Quiet On The Western Front will make up for the lack of color and CG explosions implemented in the original. The story centers on a young German soldier traumatized by the trench warfare going on around him. Leder wasn’t familiar with the novel or original film when she read the script, but found herself drawn to the themes of disillusionment that could easily mirror the sentiments of modern warfare. In other words, mama wants an Oscar. (Deadline)

Daniel Radcliffe Replacing Wand With Rifle for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/daniel-radcliffe-replacing-wand-with-rifle-for-all-quiet-on-the-western-front/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/daniel-radcliffe-replacing-wand-with-rifle-for-all-quiet-on-the-western-front/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The new guy brought his own saddle.Remember All Quiet on the Western Front, that book you were supposed to read in high school English class but instead you waited for your teacher to screen the 1930, or 1979, movie? Yeah, they're remaking that and Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is set to star. Harry (Daniel) will play a young German soldier fighting in the trenches of France.This remake seems pointless considering the original already won the Oscar for Best Picture, the highest honor that can be bestowed on a film. But I guess with today's technology the filmmakers can really take those mustard gas scenes to the next level. Add some 3D and audiences would almost be able to feel their nervous systems shutting down. Right on, Innovation. Right on. (Variety)
