Overlord: Jovan Adepo And Wyatt Russell To Star In War Film

Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell have been cast in the lead roles for Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot’s war period film Overlord.


The film is set on the eve of D-Day, 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 realise 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 film has been written by Billy Ray and Mark Smith, with Julius Avery attached to direct and J.J Abrams and Lindsey Weber on board to serve as producers. Production is set to commence in the UK in May.
