Carnaby International are in talks with Gary Oldman (RoboCop, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Jay Baruchel (RoboCop, This Is the End), and Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Dracula 3D, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) to star in Peter Briggs‘ long-gestured Panzer 88, Bloody Disgusting’s insiders reveal.
From Gary Kurtz and Ivor Powell, the producers of Star Wars, Alien and Blade Runner, Panzer 88 takes place in 1944 on the Eastern front of Russia where an “invincible German King Tiger tank retreats across icy tundra. Battle-weary, hungry and cold, its crack, five-man crew are unbroken. But fate twists when they reluctantly pick up a stranded SS officer. Unaware of his part in the massacre of a local Jewish village, it proves a fatal decision, as they become the prey of a vengeful and unstoppable mythical entity that hungers for their destruction.“
