The pair will be starring in ‘Oslo.’
The movie will be based on the Tony Award-winning play by J.T. Rogers. It describes the stories of a small group of Israelis, Palestinians, and one Norwegian couple that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.
“In collaboration with Steven, Kristie, Marc, and Bold Films, we’re delighted to work with J.T. and Bartlett to adapt their inspiring Tony Award-winning story for the screen,” said Tara Grace, senior vice president of HBO Programming and Films. “Recounting the remarkable feat of two diametrically opposed sides coming together to find common ground, Oslo‘s themes are especially pertinent, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have so many revered artisans on both sides of the camera working together to bring this to life.”
