First announced last September Adam Resurrected is based on Yoram Kaniuk’s novel. Paul Schrader was aboard to direct at that time and it seems they have finally found their Adam as Jeff Goldblum has signed on to star in the World War II Holocaust drama.
Goldblum will play the part of Adam Stein, a former circus clown who was spared the gas chamber so that he might entertain thousands of Jews as they marched to their deaths. He becomes the ringleader at an asylum in the Negeve desert populated solely by Holocaust survivors and struggles to makes sense of the world.
Noah Stollman scripted the story and it is expected to be shot in Germany, Romania and Israel.
