This morning, The Hollywood Reporter had news that Christoph Waltz and Michael Douglas are working together to make Reykjavik, a historical film about the summit between Soviet Premier Mikhael Gorbachev and President Ronald Reagan that heralded the end of the Cold War. Waltz is to star as Gorbachev, with Douglas in the role of President Reagan. This will be the first collaboration for the Oscar winners, and promises to be an amazing film. Filming starts in March 2013, in Reykjavik and Studio Babelsburg in Berlin. It is assumed this will be Mr. Waltz’s next project after The Zero Theorem which is currently in pre-production in Romania.
Earlier in the week, in an interview with Crave Online, director Frank Coraci confirmed that the OK Corral project is actually real and that Christoph Waltz was cast in the lead role, however there was no further information as to when it was to start shooting. Coraci works primarily with the Happy Madison stable of actors (Adam Sandler, Kevin James) and was the director of Click, The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy.
