Oscar and actress Olivia Wilde has been photographed on set of Life Itself yesterday and this afternoon in New York.
Oscar was caught on set of his new film “Life Itself” last Saturday (March 11) in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York City.
Life Itself is a multi-generational love story that weaves together a number of characters whose lives intersect over the course of several decades with Isaac at the center of the story.
The film is written by the creator of NBC’s hit This Is Us, Dan Fogelman, who also direct it.
We finally have the official The Promise trailer released! Directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George and starred by Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon and Christian Bale, The Promise tells the story of a love triangle set against the backdrop of the Armenian genocide.
The film, which had its world premiere last fall at Toronto was picked up by Open Road for an April 21 release. The Promise is headlined by Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon and Christian Bale.
Empires fall, love survives. When Michael (Oscar Isaac), a brilliant medical student, meets Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend Chris (Christian Bale), a famous American photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves. The Promise is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George.
It was also announced that the film will donate all proceeds from the film to various non-profit organizations including Sir Elton John’s AIDS Foundation and other humanitarian and human rights groups.
Through our friendships with the Manoukian family and producer Dr. Eric Esrailian … David and I became more personally aware of the Armenian Genocide and its timely relevance to social issues today. The film’s theme #KeepThePromise can be interpreted as keeping the promise to remember and learn from the atrocities of the past, as well as keeping the promise to end AIDS. At EJAF, we are committed to #KeepThePromise and raise awareness about this powerful film that uses classic storytelling to inspire people to take action today. We are honored to share the important timing of our Oscar-night event to introduce people to The Promise.” – Elton John
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.

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!
