Ridley Scott set to Direct REYKJAVIK a Cold War Drama

Ridley Scott is attached to produce and direct a new film called Reykjavik. The movie is based is based on the true story about the meeting between US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the mid-1980s which helped bring about the end of the Cold War.

The producer of the U.S. version of Funny Games, Christian Baute has also been brought on as the films producer. There really isn't much more information on the movie, but this should make for a great film. 

The movie is obviously based on the Reykjavík Summit meeting that was held in the famous house of Höfði in Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland in 1986. The talks collapsed at the last minute, but the progress that had been achieved eventually resulted in the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union. Scott should do an incredible job telling this story.
