The project is coming together fairly quickly, and will follow a man named Norman Oppenheimer. Known as a small-time operator, Norman befriends a young politician who finds himself at a lonely and very low point in his life. This young man goes onto become a powerful world leader in the years to follow, which sets up a series of complications for Norman. Three years after their initial meeting, Oppenheimer's life begins to change drastically for both the good and the bad.
Oppenheimer Strategies is set for a January 12 start date in New York. Tadmor Entertainment Group, Fabrica de Cine and Cold Iron Pictures will handle financing. Oren Moverman, Lawrence Inglee, Eyal Rimmon, Gideon Tadmor, Gaston Pavlovich and Miranda Bailey are all on board as producers, with Matt Malek and Amanda Marshall serving as executives.
