Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson to Star in Upcoming Film Adaptation of Oslo

An upcoming film adaptation of J.T. Rogers’ Oslo, has been announced it is in production, starring Andrew Scott (Fleabag, Black Mirror) and Ruth Wilson (HBO’s His Dark Materials, Mrs. Wilson).  Filming will take place in Prague, Czech Republic this fall and is scheduled to air on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max next year. Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play of the same name, the film is based on a true story of negotiations between implacable enemies – the secret back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics of a small but committed group of Israelis, Palestinians, and one Norwegian couple that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.
