Chris Evans and Haley Bennett are in negotiations to join Bron Studios’ “Red Sea Diving Resort” which is being penned and directed by former “Tyrant” showrunner Gideon Raff.
The true story tale deals with the Israeli Mossad’s attempted rescue of thousands of Ethiopian Jews in the country of Sudan in order to bring them back to Israel in the late 1970s/early 1980s.
The base they establish and carry out the rescue from, is in a deserted resort in Sudan. Evans would play Ari Kidron, a charming Israeli agent who assembles a ragtag team to help with the exodus on the ground.
Bennett’s role is unknown. Alexandra Milchan will produce, with production beginning this summer.
