There are so many interesting and exciting movie projects coming our way over the course of the coming years and, while people seem to be focusing mostly on the comic book movies due for release over the next few years, there are plenty of other movie projects planned for release, which are probably not getting as much attention as they deserve.
One such movie, which we are very excited about getting to see, is the new project The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, which boasts a very exciting cast, as well as one of the greatest directors to ever grace Hollywood. The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara will see Mark Rylance and Oscar Isaac sharing the big screen, while the legendary Steven Spielberg is on director duties for the film.
The movie has been officially described as, "The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara recounts the story of a young Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy in 1858 who, having been secretly baptized, is forcibly taken from his family to be raised as a Christian. His parents' struggle to free their son becomes part of a larger political battle that pits the Papacy against forces of democracy and Italian unification."
While Steven Spielberg will be in the directors chair, he will be helming the project from the Tony Kushner screenplay, which has been adapted from the David I. Kertzer novel. The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara is currently in pre-production and is expected to begin shooting in the New Year, with a release date still to be confirmed.
