Leah Adler, the mother of Steven Spielberg, died last week at the age of 97.

I have been reading some articles about her, and about Spielberg, and came across some articles about an upcoming Spielberg film, which will be released at the end of 2017. The articles are several months old, but I didn't hear anything about this film until now, and we haven't discussed it here, so I figure it's never too early to make a thread for it.

The movie is called "The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara," about young Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy, in 1858, who was secretly baptized and kidnapped from his family to be raised as a Christian.

The Leone Film Group (run by Sergio's son Andrea and daughter Raffaella) will be a production partner on the film http://deadline.com/2016/09/steven-spielberg-the-kidnapping-of-edgardo-mortara-leone-film-group-mark-rylance-oscar-isaac-1201814431/

here is the film's IMDB page http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3675680/

here is the wikipedia page about the real-life story that the movie is based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortara_case

The movie is adapted from this book by David Kertzer http://www.davidkertzer.com/books/kidnapping-edgardo-mortara
 https://www.amazon.com/Kidnapping-Edgardo-Mortara-David-Kertzer/dp/0679768173

The movie will star Oscar Isaac and Mark Rylance. And (as of a month ago) they were holding an open casting call for the role of the child https://www.google.com/amp/www.projectcasting.com/casting-calls-acting-auditions/steven-spielbergs-kidnapping-edgardo-mortara-casting-call-lead-roles/amp

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.
