According to TheNews.pl, guitarist/vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski of Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH has been cast as former German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop in a new comedy film about the Nazis.
“AmbaSSada” (EmbaSSy) is the brainchild of established film director Juliusz Machulski, who is responsible for such cult Polish comedies as 1984′s “Sex Misja” (Sex Mission) and 2004′s “Vinci”.
The plot of Machulski’s film, which is being shot this month is Warsaw, revolves around a young couple living in present-day Warsaw. Their home happens to be the former German Embassy, and entering the elevator one day, they find themselves transported back to the eve of war in 1939.
“I’ve always wanted to make a contemporary film about Warsaw which at the same time has a dialogue with history,” the director told the Polish Press Agency.
