Bombs away “Harry Potter” fans.

Daniel Radcliffe will play the lead role in a new version of the Oscar-winning Best Picture “All Quiet on the Western Front.”

The WWI drama tells the story of Paul Baumer (Radcliffe), a young German soldier fighting in the trenches of France.

Producing duo Ian Stokell and Lesley Paterson wrote the script and will produce through their Sliding Down Rainbows Entertainment production shingle.

Boffo_book Says Stokell, “Daniel brings a vulnerability and innocence to Paul. When we realized how much he loved the script we were really excited because we know he can tap into the delicate balance between intensity and believability that is critical for this demanding role.”

Based on the World War I novel by Erich Maria Remarque, “All Quiet on the Western Front” was first adapted for the bigscreen in 1930 by Lewis Mileston, whose film later took home the Oscar for Best Picture.

Shooting on “Western Front” will begin in the spring of 2012 after Radcliffe wraps a 2011 Broadway stint on “How to Succeed Without Really Trying.”

The 20 year-old actor can next be seen this fall in Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One,” which opens November 19.

Radcliffe is repped by Artists Rights Group Talent.
