It looks like Daniel Radcliffe is switching from adaptation to adaptation/remake. The actor has signed on to star in an updated version of the Oscar-winning Best Picture All Quiet on the Western Front. So why would Hollywood feel the need to remake a Best Picture? Well, that's Hollywood, really.

Dan Radcliffe for All Quiet on the Western Front

If you've read the book -- most of you should have in high school -- the WWI drama tells the story of Paul Baumer (Radcliffe), a young German soldier fighting in the trenches of France. What I vividly remember is the details of how giant cannon shells can blow all the clothes of a soldier, leaving them dead and naked. Shitty way to go, but I digress.

Producer Ian Strokell thinks Dan is the right choice for the lead. "Daniel brings a vulnerability and innocence to Paul. When we realized how much he loved the script we were really excited because we know he can tap into the delicate balance between intensity and believability that is critical for this demanding role."

I think you all know when you can next see Daniel Radcliffe and, if you can't, smack yourself.
