Viggo Mortensen will star in the big screen adaptation of CP Taylor's award-winning stage play Good, according to Production Weekly.
Vicente Amorin will direct the Nazi era film, written by John Wrathall. British actors Jason Isaacs and Mark Strong will also appear in the film.
The plot centers on a German professor in Frankfurt during the 1930s who allows himself to be seduced into the Nazi party. As he spirals down the vortex of the Reich, he rationalizes everything -- his betrayal of his family and his Jewish friend as well as the morality he used to teach. Finally, standing in SS uniform at Auschwitz, he becomes a symbol of man's ability to slide down the path to evil.
Filming is scheduled to begin on location in Potsdam and Berlin in 2007.
