The Sundance Film Festival yesterday announced its lineup for 2018, which included the feature film about Moe Berg, The Catcher Was a Spy. The film, directed by Ben Lewin, will have its world premiere at the festival, which takes place annually in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This feature film on Moe Berg, which is loosely based on the book of the same name by Nicholas Dawidoff, stars Paul Rudd as Moe, Sienna Miller as Estalla (Moe’s love interest), Jeff Daniels as Wild Bill Donovan (the head of the OSS who recruited Moe), Mark Strong as Werner Heisenberg (who we know Moe met with to determine the status of the German nuclear project), and Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti as physicists Moe interacted with.
We are so excited to see this feature adaptation of Moe’s story. Looking forward to seeing Paul Rudd sport Moe’s usual dark suits!
