Oscar Isaac is heading to Londontown…
The 41-year-old Guatemalan & Cuban actor will star in and produce London, a Lionsgate feature film based on a new short story/high-concept thriller by bestselling crime writer Jo Nesbo.
Ben Stiller will direct the film, which will be adapted for the screen by Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth.
Isaac obtained the rights to the story as a producer under his Mad Gene Media banner in competition, and then got the dream team of Stiller and Roth.
Isaac and Red Hour Productions’ Stiller will produce with Nicky Weinstock and Jason Spire.
Isaac will next star in the Denis Villenueve-directed Dune, as well as Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter.
