The movie “The Other Half of the Stone” will star Oscar-winning “Ghostbusters” director Ivan Reitman as the American president who is forced to make peace with an increasingly belligerent Nazi Germany during the Second World War.
The movie, which Reitmans “reimagines the war as an all-out global pandemic, will be co-produced by Reitmen production company and Columbia Pictures.
It was written and produced by Michael Aronofsky, who will direct the movie, along with “Ghostbuster” screenwriter Andrew Stanton and Reitmann’s wife, Jessica Reiterman, according to the Associated Press.
The film, which was originally set for a June 26, 2018 release, was put on hold by the end of the summer to focus on the war, but is now scheduled for a March 20, 2019 release.
The book by Reitsman and Stanton, which chronicles the wartime effort to end World War II and the lives of those who fought to do so, was set for release in the United States earlier this year.
It also stars Chris Evans, who won an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his performance in the movie.
The story of the war was inspired by a book by the same name.
