Evan Rachel Wood, Vanessa Redgrave to Star in ALL THAT I AM, Written by Matthew Faulk and Mark Skeet

Evan Rachel Wood, Eliza Scanlen, Rufus Sewell and Vanessa Redgrave have been cast to star in the film adaptation of Anna Funder’s World War II-era book “All That I Am.” The adaptation will be written by Matthew Faulk and Mark Skeet. Faulk and Skeet previously co-wrote the adaptation of “Vanity Fair” starring Reese Witherspoon.

The film will be directed by Kate Dennis (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Glow”) and AGC Studios is fully financing the film, which will be shot in Berlin and Sydney in late summer.

The book, written by Funder, is the 2012 international bestseller which brings to light a true story about four German-Jewish literati-turned-anti-Nazi activists who are forced to flee to London following the rise of Adolf Hitler’s regime in Germany. Sixty years later, one of the group members, Ruth Wesemann, is living in Sydney, Australia, and is the sole survivor of the four. One day she receives a package containing the posthumous memoirs of her old friend Ernst Toller and is drawn back into her memories, and the years in which the four emigrés smuggled highly classified documents from Hermann Goering’s office into the hands of Winston Churchill.
