A Heavenly Manuscript, A Hellish Journey: Oscar Isaac Takes on Dante
The entertainment world is abuzz with the latest news that Oscar Isaac is set to star in the upcoming feature film “In The Hand of Dante,” a project that has just received the green light to continue casting in preparation for production.
The film is based on a gripping tale that intertwines the life of Dante Alighieri, the Italian poet behind “The Divine Comedy,” with a modern-day mob boss and a writer named Nick Tosches.
🎬 In The Hand Of Dante
🎥 Feature Film
🚦 Status: Active Development (Approved Sag-Aftra Interim Agreement To Continue Casting.)
🎩 Producer: Darren Goldberg
📝 Writer/Director: Julian Schnabel
🌟 Cast: Oscar Isaac
📖 Synopsis: Deep inside the Vatican library, a priest discovers the rarest and most valuable art object ever found: the manuscript of “The Divine Comedy,” written in Dante’s own hand. Via Sicily, the manuscript makes its way from the priest to a mob boss in New York City, where a writer named Nick Tosches is called to authenticate the prize. For this writer, the temptation is too great: he steals the manuscript in a last-chance bid to have it all. As this dark and twisted journey unfolds, so too does a parallel tale: the odyssey of Dante himself, a man trying to weave a poem that contains the sum of the world’s wisdom and the very breath of the divine.
