“Hereditary” star Alex Wolff will play a real-life Holocaust survivor in “Untold.” The film will depict the incredible true story of Vrba’s courage and how, with his friend Fred and mentor Franz, he achieved the impossible. The group overcame one obstacle after another and became the first prisoners to escape from Auschwitz. The three fled across 100 miles of Nazi-controlled German territory to bring reports of Vrba-Wetzler to the rest of the world. The document is a witness account of the horrors that took place inside the concentration camp secretly. This record is credited with saving hundreds of lives, thanks to the clear documentation of life and death at Auschwitz.
Wolff is known for playing some intense roles. If you’ve seen his haunting performance in Ari Aster’s “Hereditary,” a tale of grief, trauma and, well, ancient demon worship, you already know how talented he is. Casting for other lead roles is underway, and filming is expected to begin in early 2023.
