DEADLINE – Stephen Brown’s Y Production just sealed a distribution deal with Mark Urman’s Paladin for the war epic The Ottoman Lieutenant, likely the first movie to look at those on the other side of World War I. The film will be released for an Oscar-qualifying run in December before going wide in February of 2017.


Starring, Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, Age of Adeline), Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina), Josh Hartnett and Ben Kingsley, the film was lensed at the famed Barrandov Studios in Prague (which recently suffered losses in a fire). Other locations were in the Czech Republic and in Turkey.


The film’s logline: “a strong-willed woman (Hilmar), who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor (Hartnett) who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire — a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty tested to both Jude and the mission’s founder (Kingsley) when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army (Huisman). With invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war” she must make a decision.


The Ottoman Lieutenant is directed by Joseph Ruben (Sleeping with the Enemy) from a screenplay by Jeff Stockwell (Bridge to Terabitha). It is a Y Production in association with Eastern Sunrise Films and produced by Stephen Joel Brown.


CAA negotiated the domestic distribution deal while ancillary and international release plans are now being finalized.


HURRIYET DAILY NEWS – A new film portraying incidents in Eastern Anatolia during World War I through the eye of a U.S. nurse has been finished.


The film, “The Ottoman Lieutenant,” stars Academy Award-winning actor Ben Kingsley (“Gandhi,” “Schindler’s List”), Josh Hartnett (“Black Hawk Down,” “Pearl Harbor”), Hera Hilmar (“Anna Karenina,” Da Vinci’s Demons”), Michiel Huisman (“Game of Thrones”) and Turkish actors Haluk Bilginer and Selçuk Yöntem.


Bilginer was cast as Khalil Bey and Yöntem as Melih Pasha in the movie, in which many other actors of Turkish descent take minor roles.


British actor Kingsley brings life to the character Dr. Garrett Woodruf in the film.


In a career spanning 40 years, Kingsley has won an Oscar, a Grammy, a BAFTA, two Golden Globes and a Screen Actors Guild Award. He is known for his starring role as Mohandas Gandhi in the 1982 film “Gandhi,” for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor.


Directed by Joseph Ruben, who is known for films “Sleeping with the Enemy” and “The Forgotten,” the film’s script was written by Jeff Stockwell (“Bridge to Terabithia,” “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys”).


Set in 1915 in the eastern province of Van, the film revolves around the love story between an idealistic American nurse and a Turkish officer in World War I.


“The Ottoman Lieutenant” tells the story of an American doctor named Jude, played by Hartnett, who is disappointed with the injustice in his country, and Lillie, played by Hilmar, an idealist young woman who leaves America to be with Jude during his duty at the Ottoman Empire.


At a time of worldwide war, Lillie falls in love with Ottoman Lieutenant İsmail, played by Huisman. As the war gets worse, Lillie needs to decide if she will live for herself or for others.


“As objective and respected to common sufferings of both Turks and Armenians, we wanted to show the audience what happened during World War I in Eastern Anatolia, a subject that has not been handled before,” said one of the producers of the film, Stephen Brown, who will also serve as a producer on a film about Rumi, the 13th century Ottoman mystic and poet, which is being developed with Academy Award-winning writer David Franzoni.


Besides Turkey’s Cappadocia and Istanbul, the film was shot at Barrandov Studios in Prague and in various exterior locations in Prague and the Czech Republic. Sets were constructed on a 300,000-square-meter lot at Barrandov Studios.


A co-production of Y Production and Es Film, the North American premiere of “The Ottoman Lieutenant” will be held in Los Angeles.

Harley and the Davidsons


COLLIDER – Based on a true story, the three part Discovery mini-series Harley and the Davidsons tells the story of the birth of the Harley Davidson motorcycle and the company that Walter (Michiel Huisman) and Arthur Davidson (Bug Hall) and their friend Bill Harley (Robert Aramayo) built from the ground up. Endless obstacles, ruthless competitors and life-or-death risks constantly tested these sons of blue collar immigrants, while they risked their entire fortune and worked to strive for the ultimate American dream. Now, the Harley Davidson company is a legacy that has endured for over 100 years.


During this exclusive interview with Collider, co-stars Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, Orphan Black), Bug Hall and Robert Aramayo talked about why this project appealed to them, getting to explore a character over such a long period of time, how these two families came together to start what was ultimately a hugely successful business, how scary the early motorcycles were to ride, the incredibly authentic sets, and how they’ll never look at a Harley-Davidson motorcycle the same again.


Collider: How did this come about for each of you, and are you personally interested in motorcycles?


BUG HALL: I think the motorcycles were a big part of the appeal. Me and Michiel rode, growing up, and loved motorcycles. For me, as far as work goes, motorcycles are never really going to do it, so it was really the script being as good as it was that brought us to the table.


ROBERT ARAMAYO: For me, personally, what I liked so much about the story was that I loved Bill, on the page. He grew into somebody who’s quite a sensitive man in a very harsh world. That was just so interesting to me. As an actor, to think about playing a character like that, in this crazy, harsh world, was very appealing to me.


MICHIEL HUISMAN: Especially when you realize how what they created in those early days lasted, I felt like it was a story that needed to be told. We owe it to the legacy of Harley Davidson to tell the story of the early days.

EW – When he’s not advising the Khaleesi or kissing an ageless Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman likes to ride motorcycles — for fun and for work. The Dutch actor (best known for his roles in Game of Thrones and The Age of Adaline) stars in Discovery’s new scripted miniseries Harley and the Davidsons, which kicks off the first of three installments Monday. (The others will air Tuesday and Wednesday.)


The series tells the story of the Harley-Davidson company, from its founding in Wisconsin to its rise to America’s most iconic motorcycle brand. Huisman plays Walter Davidson, and he might be the perfect guy for it — the guy loves motorcycles. We spoke to him about the series, his character, and his affinity for vintage Harleys.


ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What drew you to this role?


MICHIEL HUISMAN: First of all, I was so surprised by the story. I was one of those people who even thought there was a guy named Harley-Davidson that started a company at some point. But it was such a unique story, and such a slice of American history that I almost couldn’t believe it hadn’t been told before. And on top of that, I am a motorcycle enthusiast, so this was just like a dream project for me in that sense.


And Walter Davidson turned out to be an amazing character to play. Large man, both feet in Wisconsin clay, stands for what he believes in, and wants to create his own little legacy. I guess a lot of motorcycle riders, or especially Harley-Davidson riders, know that it was a company that started in a shed, but most [other] people don’t.


What was Walter’s role in the company’s founding?
