During a press conference held at the Polish Army Museum in Warsaw, producers said that the film will have an international cast, and that work on the movie should be completed during the first quarter of 2017.
Hotshot director Łukasz Palkowski, who scored a hit both with critics and at the box office with his 2014 film 'Gods', will be helming the movie.
The screenplay is based on a book by the late Polish writer Arkady Fiedler (1894-1985), who conducted extensive interviews with pilots in England during the war.
The writer's son Marek Fiedler, who was present at the Warsaw press conference, has been championing the idea of a film based on his father's book for many years.
“They were fantastically trained people, very engaged,” he said of the pilots.
“They fought in England, but they were thinking about our country the entire time - about their families.
“They knew that their fight in England was essential, so as to save their families in Poland.”
During the Battle of Britain, 303 Squadron claimed 126 'kills', the highest number of aircraft destroyed of the 66 Allied fighter squadrons engaged in the Battle of Britain.
The majority of the pilots in the squadron were Polish, although Czech pilot Josef František was in fact the most successful flying ace in the 303 squadron, with 17 kills.
Popular Czech film 'Dark Blue World' (2001) focused on the Czechoslovakian role in the battle (RAF Squadrons 310 and 312 were chiefly made up of citizens from the pre-war state of Czechoslovakia).
Part of the costs for the forthcoming Polish production will be covered by the Polish Film Institute (PISF), with support from the Polish Army Museum.
The film's budget is estimated at PLN 15 million [EUR 3.5 million]. Filming will take place in Poland, the UK and the US (Seattle).
No names of cast members have been revealed as of yet. An early draft of the script was penned by one of the grandees of Polish cinema, director, writer and actor Jerzy Skolimowski. (nh/pk)
