Terry George is directing the epic love story, which also stars Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon
After wrapping Jonathan Nolan’s upcoming HBO series “Westworld,” Angela Sarafyan has been cast as Oscar Isaac’s wife in the epic love story “The Promise,” TheWrap has learned.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Terry George (“Hotel Rwanda”) will direct from a script he co-wrote with Robin Swicord (“Memoirs of a Geisha”).
Set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire, “The Promise” deals with the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Isaac stars alongside Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon, the latter of whom serves as the center of a love triangle.
Sarafyan has closed a deal to play Isaac’s wife from an arranged marriage.
Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”) is producing “The Promise” with Eric Esrailian, Ralph Winter (“X-Men”) and William Horberg (Milk”). Production is slated to start this fall in Southern Europe, including Portugal and the Canary Islands.
Sarafyan recently appeared on “American Horror Story” and in Max Landis’ directorial debut “Me Him Her.” She also played Marion Cotillard’s sister in James Gray’s “The Immigrant” and Lucas Till’s love interest in “Paranoia.”
Sarafyan, who plays Clementine Pennyfeather on “Westworld,” recently wrapped the indie movie “Mercury Plains” with Scott Eastwood. She’s represented by Innovative Artists, Primary Wave Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
