German U-boat 'real star' of new Second World War drama "Das Boot"

Filming for Sky Germany's £25m eight-part drama series Das Boot starts this week in the French seaside town of La Rochelle.

A 240-tonne replica of a German U-boat is being moved to a French harbour ahead of filming for a major new Second World War drama series.

The plot for Das Boot will pick up where the critically acclaimed movie of the same name ended and will focus on both a fictional German U-boat crew and the French resistance trying to disrupt their activities.

Sky Germany is behind the £25m eight-part drama series and filming gets under way this week in the French seaside town of La Rochelle.

The naval base that the Nazis built using slave labour in the 1940s still stands, thanks largely to the 8m-thick reinforced concrete that they used.

«Das Boot» treibt wieder durch La Rochelle

(La Rochelle (dpa)) Mit großem Aufwand ist die Replika von U 96 von Malta an die französische Westküste verschifft worden. Jetzt laufen die Dreharbeiten zur Neuverfilmung an, auf Grundlage von Lothar-Günther Buchheims Bestseller über den U-Boot-Krieg.

Es war eine der eindringlichsten Szenen in dem 80er-Jahre-Kinohit «Das Boot» - der Untergang von U 96 in der umkämpften französischen Hafenstadt La Rochelle. Diese Woche, mehr als 35 Jahre später, laufen die Dreharbeiten für die Neuverfilmung «Das Boot - Die Serie».

Wieder ist U 96 an der französischen Westküste unterwegs. «Die 67 Meter lange, sechseinhalb Meter breite und 240 Tonnen schwere Replika wurde von Malta, wo sie in einer Schiffswerft gefertigt worden war, nach Frankreich verschifft», erläuterte eine Sprecherin des Pay-TV-Senders Sky am Mittwoch.

That's going to be interesting, I too hope it'll be as good... Stalingrad was a good remake of "Stalingrad" Dogs Do You Want To Live Forever, And Der Teufels General also had a remake-but ive never seen either version of that movie.
