Veteran actor Jeremy Irons will be essaying the role of former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in Netflix’s Munich. An adaptation of Robert Harris’s critically-acclaimed 2017 novel, the film will also feature 1917 star George McKay as Hugh Legat.

The story is set in the fall of 1938 when Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution.

“With the pressure building, British civil servant Hugh Legat and Paul von Hartmann, a German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the centre of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger,” the official plotline read.

The cast also includes Jannis Niehwohner, Liv Lisa Fries, Erin Doherty, Sandra Huller, August Diehl, Robert Bathurst, and Marc Limpach. Actor Martin Wuttke, who played German dictator Hitler in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, will reprise the role for the new film.
