Radegund is an upcoming historical drama film written and directed by Terrence Malick, starring August Diehl, Valerie Pachner and Michael Nyqvist, in one of his final roles.


The Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector, refuses to fight for the Third Reich in World War II and is executed by them in 1943.




On June 23, 2016, reports emerged about Radegund, which would depict the life of Austria’s Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector during World War II who was put to death at the age of 36 for undermining military actions, and was later declared a martyr and beatified by the Catholic Church. It was announced that set to play Jägerstätter is August Diehl and Valerie Pachner is to play his wife Franziska Jägerstätter.[1]


Radegund will have a more structured narrative than Malick's previous works according to the filmmaker, who stated, "Lately – I keep insisting, only very lately – have I been working without a script and I’ve lately repented the idea. The last picture we shot, and we’re now cutting, went back to a script that was very well ordered."[2]


The film was announced to set to begin production in Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam, Germany in the summer of 2016, and to be shot in other parts of Europe. The casting agency Han & Oldenburg also reported a shoot in Brixen and South Tyrol, located in northern Italy, which occurred from July 11, 2016 through August 19, 2016.[1]

During the month of August 2016, reports emerged that some scenes of the film were shot in the small Italian mountain village of Sappada.[3]
