Hey guys, Jana here,



Steven Spielberg has previously announced his followup project for ‘Ready Player One‘with ‘The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara‘ for Amblin Entertainment which will be due for release in the latter half of 2017. Mark Rylance is already attached to star as Pope Pius IX. Oscar Isaac of ‘Ex Machina‘ and ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ fame has been recently announced to join Rylance on screen, although we don’t know the details of his character.

The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara‘ recounts the story of a young Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy in 1858 who, having been secretly baptized, is forcibly taken from his family to be raised as a Christian. His parents’ struggle to free their son becomes part of a larger political battle that pits the Papacy against forces of democracy and Italian unification.

The project is based on the novel by David Kertzer and being adapted by Tony Kershner who was responsible for the scripts for ‘Lincoln‘ and ‘Munich‘. We’ll bring you more casting information as it comes available.
