For those of you who know Oscar Isaac, you may be familiar with his work in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Poe Dameron, a rebel pilot who fights against the very Nazi-like First Order down to the Almost Hitler Salute. Well, now it seems the actor gets to play a Mossad agent who hunts down a real Nazi in the film Operation Finale.
The film is based on the capture of notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann by Peter Malkin, a Mossad agent, after WWII. Eichmann was one of the worst of the worst in the Nazi regime. He was responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews as one of the architects of the Holocaust. Isaac is set to play Peter Malkin who hunts down the Nazi who is in hiding in Argentina.
The film will be directed by Chris Weltz, who is known for directing and writing About a Boy and also helped in writing Rogue One. I think he is a good choice and that this film could be great. I always enjoy spy films, especially historical spy films, so this could be a dream come true for me. Also, I think Isaac is a great actor who could be great in a piece like this. The film is planned to film in Argentina around the fall and will be produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger at MGM.
