Plot / Synopsis
Munich is an historical thriller set in
the aftermath of the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich
Olympics. Universal Pictures will release the film in the United States
and Canada on December 23, 2005; DreamWorks Pictures will handle international
marketing and distribution. Munich recounts the dramatic story
of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and assassinate 11 Palestinians
believed to have planned the 1972 Munich massacre -- and the personal toll
this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it. Eric Bana
(Troy) stars as the Mossad agent charged with leading the band
of specialists brought together for this operation.
Inspired by actual events, the narrative is based on a number of sources,
including the recollections of some who participated in the events themselves.
The script is the first feature film written by Tony Kushner, winner of
the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and many other awards for his epochal
Broadway drama "Angels in America" as well as its Emmy Award-winning
adaptation for HBO. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Barry Mendel,
Spielberg and Colin Wilson.
The international cast also includes Daniel Craig (Layer Cake),
Geoffrey Rush (Shine), Mathieu Kassovitz (Birthday Girl),
Hanns Zischler (Walk on Water) and Ciaran Hinds (Andrew Lloyd
Webber's The Phantom of the Opera).
