The film will be directed by American director Barlett Sher and executive produced by Mark Platt, Kristie Macosko and Steven Spielberg.
HBO has announced that it will produce a feature-length adaptation of JT Rogers’ Tony Award-winning play, Oslo, which is centred on Arab-Israeli negotiations in the 1990s that led to the peace agreement. The film is scheduled to premiere in 2021.
The film follows the secret back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics of a small but committed group of Israelis and Palestinians, plus one Norwegian couple, that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.
Oslo stars British actress Ruth Wilson (His Dark Materials) as Mona Juul, a Norwegian foreign minister, and Irish actor Andrew Scott (Fleabag, His Dark Materials) as Terje Rod-Larsen, a Norwegian sociologist and Mona’s husband.
The film will be directed by American director Barlett Sher (Tony winner for South Pacific). Executive producers include Mark Platt (La La Land), Kristie Macosko (Bridge of Spies), and Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan).
