Oscar Isaac has been cast in Ariel Kleiman's upcoming feature film debut, Partisan.
Isaac plays the lead in the Coen Brothers’ upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis and last appeared in an Australian film back in 2009 with political-thriller Balibo (which won him an AFI Award).
The film is described as a confronting tale about a vengeful man raising his children to attack the world that wronged him.
Partisan, penned by Kleiman and Sarah Cyngler, has been in development with Warp Films Australia for much of the past two years. Kleiman first came to attention with his award-winning short film Deeper Than Yesterday.
Warp Films Australia has produced two films: Snowtown and Shopping. Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw will produce Partisan and Madman Entertainment is signed on as distributor.
