THR – Oscar Isaac is set to hunt down Nazis in Chris Weitz’s upcoming World War II drama “Operation Finale,” which will tell the true story of the capture of Adolf Eichmann.
One of the primary architects of the Holocaust, Eichman helped in planning and executing the mass deportation of Jews in Eastern Europe to the ghettos and concentration camps. He went into hiding after WWII in Argentina, where he was found and brought to justice by Mossad.
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.
A fall shoot in Argentina is being eyed.
