Oscar Isaac has a new project lined up. Isaac is starring in “In the Hands of Dante,” a crime thriller film directed by Oscar nominee Julian Schnabel and produced by Martin Scorsese. It will co-star Jason Momoa and Gerard Butler
“In the Hands of Dante” is based on Nick Tosches’ novel of the same name, which follows two timelines: in the present, a scholar named Nick is hired by the mob to authenticate the original manuscript of “The Divine Comedy.” He steals it and hopes to sell it on his own, reaping all of the money. The second timeline follows Dante Alighierihimself, the author of the original story, drawing parallels between the two writers.
The film is currently shooting in Venice after it was deemed a beneficiary of the SAG-AFTRA interim agreement.
