Oscar Isaac to star in revenge thriller The Card Counter

Written and directed by Paul Schrader, the film will have Isaac playing a gambler named William Tell

Published: 30th October 2019

Paul Schrader has tapped Oscar Isaac for his next feature, a revenge thriller titled The Card Counter. Based on an original screenplay by the Taxi Driver-writer, The Card Counter will see Isaac play William Tell, a gambler and former serviceman who sets out to reform a young man seeking revenge on a mutual enemy from their past. 

Schrader will also direct, while Braxton Pope (The Take, The Trust), who previously worked with the Oscar-nominated filmmaker on The Canyons, is producing the film together with Lauren Mann (Swiss Army Man).

"Schrader is a master of economical and cinematic storytelling," said HanWay films' managing director Gabrielle Stewart. "This is essentially an unlikely and surprising three-hander that weaves together the entertaining world of gambling; a potent and personal revenge thriller; unafraid to ask some extremely current and uncomfortable questions. Isaac's Tell is set to be a modern, iconic anti-hero, unmistakably drawn by this genius screenwriter."
