EXCLUSIVE: Paul Breuls’ Belgium-based company has come on to produce and sell the long-gestating remake of All Quiet On The Western Front with Roger Donaldson set to direct.
Ian Stokell and Lesley Paterson of Sliding Down Rainbows Entertainment adapted the screenplay from Erich Maria Remarque’s classic anti-war text.
Paradigm represents US rights to the project, the latest iteration of the book that spawned Universal’s 1930 best picture Oscar winner.
All Quiet On The Western Front follows a group of young German Army recruits in WWI whose idealism is shattered when they get to the front line.
Donaldson’s most recent release was Pierce Brosnan thriller November Man and his credits include No Way Out and The Bank Job.
