Michael Douglas and Mike Newell Head to Reykjavik


Participant Media and Scott Free Productions are moving forward with the true political drama Reykjavik. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Michael Douglas is in talks to headline as President Ronald Reagan and that Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) is looking to direct.

The film follows Reagan’s sojourn to Iceland in October, 1986 to meet with Mikhail Gorbachev for Cold War peace talks.

Kevin Hood provided the screenplay for the project, which plans to shoot in Germany in March of 2013.
