Bavaria Studios Set To Remake ‘Das Boot’ | Film News

 

Wolfgang Petersen’s Das Boot is set to be remade, reports German magazine Blickpunkt Film. The 1981 drama, which follows the crew of a Second World War German submarine, will be remade by Bavaria Studios, the same production company behind the original. Christian Franckenstein, the studio head, is also looking to remake other German hit-films of the ’80s era.

 

Das Boot was based on a novel written by Lothar-Gunther Buchheim, who was stationed on a German U-boat during the war. It was one of the most expensive German films of all time but still went onto global financial success, both in its original release and the director’s cut, which was unveiled in 1997; it was also adapted into a six-part miniseries. The original was nominated for six Oscars, including ‘Best Director’ for Petersen, who went onto work in Hollywood and make films such as In the Line of Fire, The Perfect Storm and Troy.

Currently studying Film Theory at the University of South Wales, I have strong aspirations of obtaining a career in entertainment journalism in the near future. I predominantly write about Film and TV, but also have interests in Radio, Sports and the ever-present Internet. Although I believe journalism is my true calling, I also wish to fit screenwriting in somewhere down my career line – I guess I just love writing in general! Once my Degree is completed, I plan on studying a Master’s in Creative Writing to extend my writing abilities and strengthen my prospects.
