Christoph Waltz ("Inglorious Bastards", the upcoming "Django Unchained") has been cast as the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbechev in director Mike Newell's "Reykjavik".
Waltz joins Michael Douglas who will portray President Ronald Reagan in a film that "follows Reagan's sojourn to Iceland in October, 1986 to meet with Gorbachev for Cold War peace talks."
Newell had the following to say about the Douglas/Waltz team-up:
"I feel very fortunate to have two such masters to portray the men who brought about the end of the third great war of the 20th century."
"Reykjavik" will be produced by Headline Pictures, Scott Free Productions, Participant Media and Mark Sennet Productions.
"The film will offer the viewer a unique look into two larger than life figures who served as the catalysts for one of the most defining moments in our history, the end of the Cold War," producer Ridley Scott said.
