‘The Art of Getting By’s Darren Goldberg is set to present before you, a carefully crafted tale that ties history and ambition together. Rumored to star Oscar Isaac, the popular Hollywood actor who is known for his roles in Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’, ‘Dune’ and other hits, ‘In the Hand of Dante’ narrates a dramatic story of a writer who comes across the original handwritten manuscript of one of the world’s classically recognized literary pieces, in hopes of having it for himself. If you haven’t guessed this spectacular literary piece from the title of this upcoming feature film, allow us to introduce you to Dante’s masterpiece, his magnum opus, ‘The Divine Comedy’!
La Commedia or ‘The Divine Comedy’ is an Italian poem composed by Dante Alighieri that narrates Dante’s journey through ‘Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso’. Centered on the strengths and weaknesses that make humans who they are, ‘The Divine Comedy’ is so popular that it is read and studied upon centuries after its composition. Such is the influence of this work that it is relatable and imparts wisdom to its readers even today. With Darren Goldberg heading the production for ‘In the Hand of Dante’, viewers can expect an honest reverie to the original work of the Middle ages’ author.
With an approved SAG-AFTRA Interim Agreement, the casting for the upcoming film is still underway. Yet, our sources indicate that the actively developing entertainer will supposedly be directed by Julian Schnabel, a well known artist and a filmmaker with several works that speak the extent of his creative skills such as ‘Before Night Falls’ and ‘At Eternity’s Gate’. He is popular for his unique usage of broken ceramic plates to create and construct his artworks, with examples being ‘St. Francis in Ecstasy’ and ‘The Student of Prague’. With Julian Schnabel joining Darren Goldberg in the creative team, it is no surprise that the upcoming film is expected to be a total smasher.
If Oscar Isaac is indeed playing the lead role for the film, then the viewers are guaranteed an enthralling watch. Isaac will play the role of Nick Tosches, a writer who is called by a mob boss to authenticate the handwritten original manuscript of ‘The Divine Comedy’ but becomes so tempted, that he steals it for himself. Parallelly, Dante is in the composition of his masterpiece of divine wisdom. The question that remains is how exactly are these two storylines tying up at the end and whether one’s alteration would potentially affect the other? If your inner literature seeking minds are in desperate need of a film that would reveal the merit of quality compositions, then, ‘In the Hand of Dante’ is certainly for you!
