There is a report online this evening from Variety, which notes that Harry Potter actor Dan Radcliffe, has been attatched to the remake of the war-time film, "All Quiet on the Western Front."  The paper is reporting that Mr. Radcliffe will be playing the lead role of Paul Baumer in the film, which garnered the Best Picture statue in 1930 at the Academy Awards.  The report continues:

Producing duo Ian Stokell and Lesley Paterson wrote the script and will produce through their Sliding Down Rainbows Entertainment production shingle.
Says Stokell, "Daniel brings a vulnerability and innocence to Paul. When we realized how much he loved the script we were really excited because we know he can tap into the delicate balance between intensity and believability that is critical for this demanding role."
Production on "All Quiet on the Western Front" is slated to being in the spring of 2012.

While this is indeed exciting news, Leaky is working to confirm the story with reps for Mr. Radcliffe and will bring you more info when we have it.

I would hardly call this a remake, the movie was filmed 80 years ago!!
In fact a lot of people were waiting for a readaptation of the book, so this is great. Dan is perfect for the role, just like the producers explained. It’ll be interesting to watch a movie that shows the German side of WWI, they always show the other front’s stories.

We all agree that for the most part remakes suck, but since I’m sure that a movie from the 30’s is pretty much unknown by the movie going population, which is comprised of pre-teens to young adults giving the difference between its original popularity and its popularity at present of eight decades, I doubt that people will ever hold high standards based on the predecesor.

Absolutely great! I’ve never been a big “fan” of “remakes”…but this could be good. And it will be even better, with a fine actor like Dan. Congratulations, Dan!

@♫Sarita♫ [Roar]! This would be the third film of All Quiet on the Western Front that I know of, actually. Since it’s based off a book I think it’s okay, versus something original. It’s interesting to see another take on Remarque’s masterpiece. As a HUGE fan of All Quiet on the Western Front, I’d love to see Dan as Paul.
