Joseph Cedar-directed film fills out cast…

Screen Daily says Michael Sheen (‘Kill the Messenger’), Steve Buscemi (‘Boardwalk Empire’), Josh Charles (‘Adult Beginners’), Charlotte Gainsbourg (‘Nymphomaniac’), Dan Stevens (‘The Guest’), Isaach De Bankole (‘Calvary’) and Lior Ashkenazi (‘Big Bad Wolves’) are to join Richard Gere (‘Time Out of Mind’) for ‘The Oppenheimer Strategies.’

With Joseph Cedar (‘Footnote,’ ‘Campfire,’ ‘Beaufort ‘) writing and directing, the film tells the story of “a man whose life changes dramatically after he befriends a young politician who becomes an influential world leader.”

Filming gets underway this week in New York and Israel, with Lawrence Inglee, Eyal Rimmon and Oren Moverman producing. Executive producers include Michal Graidy, Caroline Kaplan, Amanda Marshall, Jim Kaufman and Doug Mankoff.
