Actor Oscar Isaac 'Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara'

Oscar Isaac is joining forces with Steven Spielberg. The Star Wars and “X-Men” actor is currently in talks to star in the director’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara for Amblin Entertainment.

Isaac will star opposite Oscar winner Mark Rylance, a Spielberg favorite recently (Bridge of Spies, The BFG), in the religious drama. Spielberg would shoot Edgardo in the first quarter of 2017 after he finishes Ready Player One.

Tony Kushner is adapting the script based on David Kertzer’s novel.

Edgardo Mortara tells the story of a young Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy in 1858 who, having been secretly baptized, is forcibly taken from his family to be raised as a Christian. His parents’ struggle to free their son becomes part of a larger political battle that pits the Papacy against forces of democracy and Italian unification.

Isaac’s role in the film, produced by Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger, isn’t known.

Spielberg has been attached to Edgardo for some time. According to insiders, he decided to make it his next movie after Ready Player One after being impressed by Kushner’s script.

In addition to high-profile tentpoles, Isaac’s impressive resume includes heralded indies like Ex-Machina, A Most Violent Year and Inside Llewyn Davis.

His 2015 included the HBO limited series Show Me a Hero, which, despite his Emmy snub, won him a Golden Globe in January. He next stars in Terry George’s The Promise, which is looking at a possible festival run in the fall.

Isaac also recently wrapped production on Alex Garland’s Annihilation as well as Star Wars VIII, both of which open in 2017. He is repped by UTA and Inspire Entertainment.

Many actors, & Actresses Attend White-garment Churches; This is Why

Many actors, & Actresses Attend White-garment Churches; This is Why

Nollywood actress, Adediwura Adesegha, who is popularly known as Blarkgold has revealed why she thinks many actors and actresses attend white-garment churches.

According to Adediwura Adesegha most of the actors like churches where they would be told what becomes of them tomorrow. She further said that many Yoruba actors, especially the females, prefer attending Celestial churches to get visions.

In her own words,

“You know people love it when they tell them visions about themselves. I think that may be the reason they attend Celestial churches.

“I might be wrong though. You know the Yorubas believe in the power of the spiritual. Some actresses were born into the Celestial church while some joined.”

“Spirituality has nothing to do with your mode of dressing. It has to do with your heart.

When you talk about being spiritual, let me just score myself fifty percent. My morning devotion is on zero level. I will rather sing.

“I find it difficult to pray and keep saying ‘Lord do this or that for me.’

“Singing is the way I pour my heart to God. Everybody doesn’t have to kneel down and pray.

“I might sit down and just look on a spot for a while and keep my thoughts connected to God. It depends on one’s way of connecting and your relationship with God.”
