Oscar Isaac Will Star in 'London' Directed by Ben Stiller

Oscar Isaac is set to star in London, Deadline reports.

The film will be based on a short story concept from crime writer, Jo Nesbo and Oscar will be producing the pic, with Ben Stiller behind the camera as director.

Lionsgate president Erin Westerman shared a statement on the movie, saying, “This is an incredible team of filmmaking that has come together for this project. Eric [Roth] is a master storyteller whose screenplays are canonized in film history; Ben’s work as a filmmaker, including his latest accomplishment, Escape at Dannemora, is astounding; Oscar is a force in all that he does, both behind and in front of the camera.”

She added, “As Eric adapts Jo Nesbo’s evocative and memorable short story into an incredible film, we’re confident that Ben will bring all of the tension and emotion in directing London – and Oscar will not only give a riveting and dynamic performance, but as the producer leading the process to bring this team together, has an incredible energy and passion for the material.”

“As fans, we are thrilled this tour de force of talent came together for such a compelling story, and as a studio, we are honored they chose Lionsgate.”

Stay tuned for more information about the movie as it gets released.

Next up, Oscar will be seen in Dune, opposite Timothee Chalamet.
