Hunger co writer Enda Walsh on Nazi film

Endo Walsh is all set to take on a Nazi exterminator.

Enda Walsh

Enda Walsh is critically known for his work on the film Hunger. He is right now in line to write a screenplay based on the life of Nazi extermination camp commander Franz Stangl according to the Australian Press.

Stangl was a senior assault leader for Hitler’s SS and a commander of two Nazi extermination camps who was infamous for his quick rise to power, ruthless leadership and consequent alcoholism. After the end of the war, he escaped but was eventually tracked down by Nazi Hunter Simon Wiesenthal in Brazil, extradited back to West Germany and tried for the death of around 900000 people. He was serving a life imprisonment when he died of heart failure in 1971. This is going to be really exciting stuff to expect from the writer.

Walsh is right now on the research process of the story he also has a children’s book he wants to adapt titled Island of the Aunts and a Dusty Springfield biopic in the works according to a recent L.A. times article.

The screen version of Walsh’s play The Chatroom about a suicide chat room has also been adapted into a film by J-horror director Hideo Nakata and will see release later this year. The Japanese really do love their Internet themed horror films.
