The American actor Richard Gere, who has been cast in a film by the Israeli director Joseph Cedar, will be coming to Israel next week for shooting, a media report says.
Also in the cast are the Israeli actors Tali Sharon, Neta Riskin, Dov Glickman and Yehuda Almagor, as well as Brooklyn's Steve Buscemi and the Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ynet reports.
Gere's filmography is enormous, but the 65-year-old actor is perhaps best known for three: "Pretty Woman," (1990) with Julia Roberts, "An Officer and a Gentleman," (1982) with Debra Winger, and "American Gigolo," (1980) with Lauren Hutton.
Cedar, 46, directed, among other films, "Beaufort," (2007) about the experiences of a group of Israeli soldiers defending an isolated area near the end of the Lebanon War; and his debut, "Time of Favor," (2000) an Israeli-military thriller with a love triangle running through it.
