Oscar Isaac To Star In Nazi Hunting Thriller

Oscar Isaac has landed the lead role in Operation Finale, a period thriller about the capture of Adolf Eichmann.

Considered to be one of the architects of the Holocaust, Eichmann oversaw the extermination of hundreds of thousands of Jews, mainly from Hungary. Like many other Nazi war criminals, after World War II Eichmann escaped to Argentina where he lived in hiding. Israel's Mossad eventually found him, and in an operation captured him and smuggled him out of the country. Eichmann was tried and executed in Israel in 1962.

Isaac will play Peter Malkin, one of the agents in the operation that led to Eichmann's apprehension and smuggling.

Chris Weitz ("About a Boy") is set to direct the project, which some people have described as being in the same vein as Argo or Munich.

Isaac has a few films coming up including Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the George Clooney written and directed crime/comedy Suburbicon, and Alex Garland's highly anticipated sci-fi thriller Annihilation. The actor is currently filming Life Itself opposite Olivia Wilde, Samuel L. Jackson, Mandy Patinkin, Olivia Cooke, and Annette Bening.
