Christoph Waltz to play Mikhail Gorbachev

Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”) will play Mikhail Gorbachev in Mike Newell’s “Reykjavik’, a drama about the meeting between the Russian leader and Ronald Reagan that signaled an end to the Cold War.

Michael Douglas committed to play Reagan a few months back.

“I feel very fortunate to have two such masters to portray the men who brought about the end of the third great war of the 20th century,” Variety quotes Newell (“Great Exepectations”) as saying.

The film, set to lense from March in Reykjavik, Iceland and Germany, was written by Kevin Hood.

“The film will offer the viewer a unique look into two larger-than-life figures who served as the catalysts for one of the most defining moments in our history, the end of the Cold War,” said Scott Free prexy Ridley Scott (“Black Rain”), who serves as one of the producers.
