(CBS SF) – Throughout President Ronald Reagan’s second time period within the mid-late eighty’s, adorned U.S. Marine Oliver North was in the midst of the Iran-Contra scandal over the sale of weapons to Iran with a portion of the proceeds going to the Contras in Nicaragua.
A one-hour restricted collection is about to start filming based mostly on the Iran-Contra affair with Colin Farrell to play Lt. Col. Oliver North. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, who directed Farrell in 2015’s Oscar nominated movie “The Lobster,” the collection will run on Amazon’s streaming service.
Lanthimos tells the Related Press he’s excited to work together with his “Lobster” star as soon as once more and feels that the Iran-Contra story is “very recent and related to our occasions.”
Actor, Ben Stiller is claimed to be among the many government producers of the untitled venture.
