Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson are tipped to be starring in Fox’s adaptation of Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief. Directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey), production will commence this month in Berlin.

Narrated by Death, the book is set in Nazi Germany. The book’s central character is Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, played by French-Canadian actress Sophie Nelisse, living with her foster parents (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson), after her parents have been taken to a concentration camp. Chaos and pain abound. It is Liesel’s story and the story of the inhabitants of her street, and a Jewish fist-fighter who hides in her home during the escalation of World War II.

The Book Thief is a widely admired novel. Will the film do the book justice?
