Synopsis

On the eve of D-Day during World War II, American paratroopers are caught behind enemy lines after their plane crashes on a mission to destroy a German Radio Tower in a small town outside of Normandy. After reaching their target, the paratroopers come to realize that besides fighting off Nazi soldiers, they also must combat against horrifying, bloody, and violent creatures that are a result of a secret Nazi experiment.

Paramount acquired the rights to the film in 2017, bringing Mark L. Smith onboard to fine-tune the screenplay. Overlord's story was originally by J.J. Abrams and Billy Ray. At one point, fans thought this was another secret installment of the Cloverfield franchise, but Abrams confirmed it's a standalone feature. Julius Avery was hired as director in 2017, and production began in May of that year.
