National Treasure” and “Inglorious Basterds actress Diane Kruger is slate to embody a legendary German actress Marlene Dietrich in an upcoming 5-Part TV series helmed by director Fatih Akin. 

Kruger will reunite with Golden Bear-winning director Akin after they previously worked together on 2017 film “In The Fade,” which won Kruger the Best Actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

Director Fatih Akin helms the biographical series based on the biography “Dietrich, Meine Mutter Marlene” penned by Dietrich’s daughter Maria Riva. Akin says in a statement: “No one could be better cast than her. Marlene wasn’t just a cinema icon, but a woman in exile, a German migrant to America, a resistance fighter and much more.”

Kruger, who is also executive produce the project, mentioned that the series will aim to go further than Dietrich’s global success as an actress, it will explore some of her off the silver screen intimate details. 

With Fatih’s talent and ability to see inside the soul of every person, I’m certain that this won’t just be a series about the icon and worldstar Marlene Dietrich but most of all an intimate portrait of this singular woman living through an extraordinary epoch,” Kruger said in a statement.
