LONDON — “Alone in Berlin,” which stars Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson and Daniel Bruhl, will start to shoot on Friday on location in Berlin, Cologne and Gorlitz, Germany.

Pic is the English-language adaptation of Hans Fallada’s novel, based on the true story of a working-class couple who conducted a series of anonymous protests against the Nazi regime during World War II. The screenplay was written by Achim von Borries (“Good Bye Lenin!”) and Vincent Perez.
