A best-selling German satirical novel about the return of Adolf Hitler to modern-day Germany is being adapted into a film.
“Er Ist Wieder Da,” German for “He’s Back,” sold 1.3 million copies in Germany after its 2012 release. In the book, Hitler awakens in modern-day Berlin and garners enough attention to become host of his own comedy TV show.
The movie will be released by Munich-based Constantin Film, according to The Associated Press, and the book’s author, Timur Vermes, will write the screenplay. It is targeted for release in 2015.
An English translation of the book, “Look Who’s Back,” will be released in April.JTA
