Oliver Hirschbiegel, the man that brought us the Oscar-nominated Downfall back in 2004, is prepared to revisit Nazi Germany for another epic tale. This time he’ll tell the story of Georg Elser, a resistance fighter that made an attempt to kill Adolf Hitler.
The film will follow Elser from his early years in the Swabian Alps – when National Socialism arrived in his hometown – to his last days at the Dachau concentration camp, where he was killed shortly before the end of the war at the command of the one whom he himself wanted to kill, Hitler.

Filming has all ready begun for Georg Elser, which will see Hirschbiegel back in the genre where he found great success. Downfall earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. His last film, Diana, didn’t fare so well. Hopefully this will be a return to form for the director.
