Ehud Bleiberg, Chairman and CEO of Bleiberg Entertainment, announced today that Sir Derek Jacobi will star in Paul Schrader's epic drama "Adam Resurrected." The film will be based on Isreali author Yoram Kaniuk's novel and will co-star Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe.
"We are thrilled that an actor with Sir Derek's pedigree has joined our international cast," said Bleiberg. "His respected work across all mediums makes him an incredible asset to this important film." The film tells the story of Adam Stein, a former circus entertainer who was spared death during the Holocaust so that he could entertain thousands of other Jews as they marched to their deaths.
Principal photography began in April in Germany, Romania and Israel. Bleiberg intiated the project, and is producing and financing it along with EMS/3L's Werner Wirsing ("Monster.") [Peter Knegt]
