THE FAN CARPET – From the director of The Forgotten Joseph Ruben, comes the powerful and gripping action-packed drama, THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT. Featuring an all-star cast including Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List), Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Penny Dreadful), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, The Age of Adaline) and Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina, Davinci’s Demons) THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT will be released on Digital Download from 24 July and DVD and Blu-ray from 7 August.

 

THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT tells the wartime story of a strong-willed woman Lillie (Hera Hilmar) who leaves the United States after meeting Jude (Josh Hartnett) an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the exotic Ottoman Empire. There, she finds her loyalty tested to both Jude and the mission’s sagacious founder (Ben Kingsley) when she falls in love with Ismail (Michiel Huisman), a Lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Set among the backdrop of World War 1 and tied together with epic battles and mind-blowing fight sequences, Lillie must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.

 

What was it like playing a character in this setting, and what were some challenges for your character (Ismail)?

 

Yes, there were definitely challenges when it came to portraying Ismail. First off, I had to learn a little bit of Turkish, so that itself was a major challenge. It takes place right before the First World War in Turkey, a time I knew little about when I first began working on this project. It is essentially a love drama set against the backdrop of a world that is slowly falling apart. Despite the horrors encircling the region, which I’ve only later come to fully understand, the film is really a romantic drama, and that was always the driving force of the way I would tell Ismail’s story.

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.
