No one wanted to play Adolf Hitler in 'Jojo Rabbit'


  • Taika Waititi began adapting Christine Leunan's novel, Caging Skies, in 2011.

  • A lot of A-list actors were offered the role of Hitler, but turned it down, despite loving the script

  • Finding a producer was a challenge, too

  • Fox Searchlight took on the film, on terms that Waititi plays Hitler

  • Waititi felt weird about it

  • Making 'Hitler funny' is dicey territory, and may be tricky in Germany
