Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley is set to play German Nazi lieutenant colonel, Adolf Eichmann, in an upcoming thriller "Operation Finale".
The Chris Weitz-directed film is about the hunt and capture of the notorious Nazi war criminal in Argentina in the '60s, reported Deadline.
Actor Oscar Isaac has also come on board the project, in which he will play Peter Malkin, the leader of a group of Israeli spies tasked with hunting down Eichmann.
Production on the film will begin this fall in Argentina.
