Chris Weitz is directing the thriller, which tells of the capture of Adolf Eichmann.

Oscar Isaac is going to hunt some Nazis.

The actor, who stars in the Star Wars movies as hotshot pilot Poe Dameron, will lead the period drama Operation Finale, the story of the capture of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Chris Weitz is directing the drama, which is said to echo thrillers such as Argo and Munich. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger are producing the project, which is set up at MGM.

Eichmann was considered one of the architects of the Holocaust and oversaw the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Jews, mostly those from Hungary. After World War II, he fled to Argentina, where he lived in hiding.

Israel’s Mossad eventually discovered his whereabouts, and in a tense operation captured him and smuggled him out of the country.

Isaac will play Peter Malkin, the man who wrestled Eichmann to the ground on the evening of May 11, 1960.

(Eichmann was tried and executed in 1962. Malkin went on to have an illustrious career as a Mossad agent, with the capture of Eichmann becoming a popular tale for film and TV.)

A fall shoot in Argentina is being eyed.

 

Oscar Isaac is objectively the best so this should be a good time.

Your complaints have been noted and have been forwarded to the @aabattery Thread Title Committee.

is there an ombudsman we can take this to if we're still not happy with the Committee's actions?

 

The AATTC requires full autonomy to properly function and thus operates without any oversight. 

 

So no. No ombudsman.
