Pulitzer Prize winning bestseller All The Light We Cannot See is officially getting the Netflix treatment, with a limited series in the works. While the project is in very early stages we have a few tidbits of info which suggest the series is going to be a big one for the streamer.

Here's everything we know about Netflix's All The Light We Cannot See.

What's All The Light We Cannot See about?

The series is based on the Pulitzer Prize winner of the same name by Anthony Doerr, which has spent over 200 weeks on the New York Time best-seller list since its release in 2014. The four-part series will follow the story of Werner, a German soldier and Marie-Laure, a french teenager who is blind as the pair are thrown together in the midst of occupied France during World War II. The story centres on their lives from trying to survive the horror or WWII in 1934 all the way to their lives now in 2014.

Who has been cast in All The Light We Cannot See?

Netflix has only just announced the series, so we don't yet know who has been cast to play any of the roles. However, Free Guy director Shawn Levy is set to direct all four episodes, and according to Collider is also putting out a casting call for actors who are "blind or low vision" to play Marie-Laure.

Alongside Levy, Steven Knight has been drafted to write the episodes, translating the novel for screen. Previously, Knight has worked on Peaky Blinders and Taboo, so you know he knows what he's doing.

When is All The Light We Cannot See being released?

Like we said, we're in very early stages at the moment (sorry for being so keen), so we don't yet have a release date for the project, but trust us, we'll be keeping a very close eye on developments.
