Director Andreas Prochaska currently shooting the new series »DAS BOOT« with Leonard Kunz and Jakub Gierszal.
A drama sequel to Wolfgang Petersen’s acclaimed German-language 1981 U-boat movie »DAS BOOT« – »The Boat« – will film as a drama series across multiple European locations.
The series is a sequel to the original 1981 film and Lothar-Günther Buchheim novel, that told the fictionalised story of the crew of German U-boat U-96 as they targeted Allied ships in the Atlantic in 1941.
The shooting will start its 104 day shoot in August, taking in locations such as La Rochelle, Malta, Prague and Munich. The series will be produced by companies Bavaria Fernsehproduktion, Sky Deutschland and Sonar Entertainment.
“This new production, supported by tremendous writing, an acclaimed international cast and crew, stunning locations and a budget more commonly associated with feature films, will be a fitting sequel to the iconic work that it follows,” said Jenna Santoianni, Sonar Entertainment’s EVP, who will distribute television series outside the Sky territories, according to the trade.
