LOS ANGELES, April 5 (Itar-Tass) – The HBO TV channel, producers Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks on Thursday announced plans to make their own movie story about the last USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev was the first and last President of the Soviet Union, serving from 1988 until the union’s dissolution in 1991. The screenwriter will be John Shiban, known for the TV series “Breaking Bad” and “The X-Files.”
According to the Deadline website, the idea to make the movie struck Leonardo DiCaprio in 2011, after his meeting with the politician. Personally Gorbachev and his interpreter Pavel Palazhchenko will be the filmmakers’ advisors. The plot of the movie centres around the collapse of the Soviet Union and Gorbachev’s role in ending the “Cold War.” The date of the film’s release has not been disclosed.
British film director Mike Newell for his part plans to shoot in the United States the “Reykjavik” movie. The authors of this picture want to remind the cinema audience of the historic meeting of the USSR leader, to be played by actor Christoph Waltz, with US President Ronald Reagan (Michael Douglas) in October 1986. This event is considered to be the starting point for the beginning of dialogue between the two superpowers.
