RESISTANCE WW2 FILM WITH
JESSE EISENBERG, ED HARRIS
I don't recall seeing him in period set pieces, but Jesse Eisenberg will lead World War II movie RESISTANCE joined in the cast by Ed Harris, Edgar
Ramirez, Clemence Poesy! As Deadline reports, the film based on the inspirational true story of iconic French mime artist Marcel Marceau who worked with the French Resistance to help save the lives of thousands of orphans during the war.
|Jesse Eisenberg will play the lead role|
The film will chart how groups of Girl and Boy Scouts created a network to help save children whose parents had been killed by the Nazis. Marceau, an orthodox Jew whose father was killed in Auschwitz, is said to have learned to mime partly in order to help the children escape.
Eisenberg, apparently prepared for a whole year for the role with the help of his own mother who worked before as a clown. Ed Harris will portray General George S. Patton, Poésy will play a central member of the French Resistance!
