Oscar Isaac to Star in WWII Thriller ‘The Garbo Network’

Oscar Isaac will star in WWII thriller The Garbo Network as a real-life double agent.

William Wheeler wrote the script, which is based on the true story of Juan Pujol Garcia, an eccentric double-agent who, with no military or covert training, somehow persuaded both the Germans and the British to hire him as a spy. As it turned out, his real allegiance was to England, and working closely with MI-5, he created a fictional network of 27 spies said to be spread out over England, Scotland and Ireland, supplying him with critical information about British troop movements and military planning. He actually made the whole thing up, but it was a turning point in the war, enabling the English to deceive the Germans about the invasion of Normandy.

Garcia is the only man in the history of World War II to receive distinguished Medals of Honor from opposing sides: the German Iron Cross and the Member of the Order of the British Empire.

A director is not yet attached to the project.

Storyscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper and Richard Saperstein, Chuck Weinstock, Jason Spire and Isaac are producing. Cooper will be in Berlin for the premiere of Storyscape’s Maudie at the Berlinale and will be meeting with buyers regarding The Garbo Network.

“This is a tricky part. There are very few actors who can do both pathos and comic grandiosity,” said Weinstock. “Oscar is one of them, and we feel very lucky to have him.”

Isaac recently joined Dan Fogelman’s Life Itself, which is also selling in Berlin, and is attached to the George Clooney-directed Suburbicon. He will next be seen starring in Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi and in the Alex Garland-directed Annihilation. He will also be returning to the stage this summer to star as the titular character in Hamlet at NYC’s Public Theatre.

Oscar reacts to Carrie’s passing

She had no patience for pretense or small talk. She saw through things, at a different angle, with the gritty wisdom…

Carrie Fisher, the unforgettable Princess Leia, dies at age 60.

Carrie Fisher, the unforgettable Princess Leia, dies at age 60.

After suffering a heart attack on December 23, Carrie Fisher was reported to be in stable condition. Despite medical efforts, the 60-year-old died this morning.

One of the funniest videos we have of Carrie and Oscar was from The Force Awakens red carpet, as you can re-watch below:

In an interview to Vulture, while promoting The Force Awakens, Oscar also told how he met her.

The first time I met her was a dinner that we all had when the cast was first arriving. Immediately, she just wasn’t interested in small talk. She even said it: “I’m sorry, I just can’t do small talk. Let’s just get into it.” She talked about her fears and her insecurities, and she’s so refreshingly off-grid. I love it, I love it. She’s a truth-teller.

Rest in Power, Carrie! May the Force always be with you!

Oscar Isaac reads Sir Alec Guinness’ grumpy Star Wars letter

Sir Alec Guinness really didn’t enjoy his time on the Star Wars set as Obi Wan Kenobi. That was revealed by a Letter’s Live letter read out by Star Wars star Oscar Isaac earlier this year, and now we’ve got the video from his reading. Guinness wrote that his A New Hope dialogue was “rubbish” and called co-star Harrison Ford a “languid man” in a letter to his friend Anne Kaufman in 1977. Watch it:
