Cast Announced for Bad Robot’s Supernatural Nazi Movie ‘Overlord’

There are rumors that this movie is in some way connected to the Cloverfield universe, but let’s put those aside for now and deal in facts here. The facts? Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot jointly announced today the complete cast for Overlord, being directed by Julius Avery!

Joining the previously announced Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell, the film will also star Jacob Anderson (“Game of Thrones”), Dominic Applewhite (The King’s Speech), Pilou Asbaek (“Game of Thrones”), Iain de Caestecker (“Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.”), John Magaro (The Big Short), Mathilde Ollivier (The Misfortunes of Francois Jane), and Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”).

In Overlord

On the eve of D-Day, a group of American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success, but as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.

The Bad Robot production is produced by J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber, and written by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant).

It’ll begin shooting this May in the U.K.

    I liked this movie better when it was called Frankenstein’s Army.

    I liked it better when I hadn’t read the story outline.. Return to Wolfenstein anyone?

      Let’s hope it’s better than SS Doomtrooper!

    Yawn
    Nazi-bait kinda bores me

    The way some people cant stop talking about the Nazi’s every chance they get starts to get kind of annoying

    Ageed that the Nazi/horror angle is pretty stale, not that its all bad but its been done time and time again andit for the most part get stupider and stupider

    You know what they haven’t done with nazis? An MCU style action series starring Tom Cruise. Probably the best idea I’ve ever had. Oh wait, Valkyrie. But that wasn’t an MCU style action series. Just Tom Cruise with a neat eye patch and limited depth perception. So it’s different.

    J.J. Abrams is very overrated. Nazi shit is so lazy and played out. It’s bad enough there is so much white nationalism shit going on in the real world today without bringing Nazi shit to the big screen again and again…..

    • RiseCowthulhu

      Right? Because a WWII movie is going to just keep that old real world white nationalism thing going……….probably Foster and “The Accused” can be blamed for current day sexual assaults. And movies about the drug trade keep the cartels in business….
      So, let’s hear your idea for an original movie. Since based off your professional success and acclaim you know Abrams is so overrated.
      Flipping internet.
      Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those can do neither, critique. And the ones who aren’t articulate enough to critique in a coherent, rational, or engaging way post their hate on discussion boards.

        LOL. No need to get your panties in a bunch. Abrams fanboys are just as delusional as Nolan fanboys. Abrams is a hack. A Steven Spielberg wannabe. The Force Awkens is a carbon copy of A New Hope.

        You enjoy his movies good for you. I think they are shit. It’s America, I can still have an opinion. If you think your little hate filled rant is supposed to mean something to me, you are pathetically mistaken. Enjoy your Nazi shit.

      Don’t forget about Marvel and their Captain America Hydra agent crap they are going for this year =P

      • American Atheist

        Lame. They seriously have no creativity. It’s just lazy writing.

        Nothing will ever touch Ed Brubaker’s Captain America. Phenomenal literature.

  • Saltoner

    Did you find the Easter-egg in Episode VII that ties it to Cloverfield?…

    Top tier writing credits.
