So yeah, The 4th Reich sounds kind of crazy to me so far. It’ll see Sean Bean (pictured inside; “Game Of Thrones”, LOTR), special effects wizard/actor Tom Savini (“From Dusk Till Dawn”), and Craig Conway (The Descent) acting for director Shaun Robert Smith (The Forgotten Ground).
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “Sean Bean has signed to star opposite an ensemble cast including Sean Pertwee, Tom Savini and Craig Conway in Shaun Robert Smith-directed WW2 action-horror film The 4th Reich. Bean, whose resume boasts high profile turns in “Game of Thrones” and ‘Lord of the Rings’, will play a charismatic British sergeant major in the film.”
The script, “details the story of a brigade of British soldiers sent into occupied mainland Europe who find themselves up against an enemy created by Nazi scientists as an all-powerful fighting force for what would be the 4th Reich.”
The movie was recently purchased by U.K. sale to eOne Entertainment. It is scheduled to shoot this summer and U.K. indie production banner Mann Made Films are currently recruiting more cast.
