Kingsley, Isaac To Lead “Operation Finale”

Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac are set to lead the Chris Weitz-directed WW2 thriller “Operation Finale” for MGM.

The story will deal with the hunt and capture of the notorious Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann (Kingsley) in Argentina in the 1960s.

Eichmann organized the transport of Jews from countries all over Europe to concentration camps where millions were murdered.

Isaac plays Peter Malkin, a Mossad operative with a deep personal hatred of the Nazis (they killed his sister and her children) and leads a team tasked with hunting down Eichmann who fled to Argentina after the war.

British scribe Matthew Orton penned the spec script while shooting will begin this Fall in Argentina. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Jason Spire and Fred Berger will produce.
