Paul Verhoeven has secured sufficient backing to finance the film. It will go ahead after 5 years of finding a director, writing a screenplay, getting permissions from the author and publisher and etc. Kudos to John Beckner for going above and beyond the call of duty to get it this far.
Casting is now in progress for the lead roles - the role of Guy Sajer has been narrowed down to 6 men, all of whom are well known actors. One is an American, the rest are Europeans. The lead contender is from the UK and is relatively well known in the US - though he is in his mid- to late-20s, he could easily pass for a teenager.
There has been no casting call for overweight, balding middle-aged WWII reenactors, which rules me out (verdammt!)
That's it for now - more to follow as it becomes known.
