Edgar Ramirez Takes On Lead Role In The War Has Ended

Posted by at 2:23 pm on October 23, 2019

Edgar Ramirez, best known for Carlos and The Assassination of Gianni Versace, will star in the drama The War Has Ended, from writer and director Hagar Ben-Asher’s award-winning original script about a man in search of his children. Mister Smith Entertainment will launch international sales at next month’s American Film Market.

The film is being produced by Dale Armin Johnson (“Lost City of Z,” “Pawn Sacrifice”), Colleen Camp (“Above Suspicion,” “Knock Knock”), Jill Littman (“Proof,” “Ten Days in the Valley”) and Marek Rozenbaum, the chairman of the Israeli Academy of Cinema and Television.

Set in Poland in 1945, at the end World War II, Joseph (Ramirez) travels through battle-scarred towns with his horse, Oscar, and his enchanting puppet show to give local children a momentary escape from reality. Joseph performs the story of “Frank and Tiny,” two elephants on the hunt for Frank’s lost trunk, but his real mission is the perilous hunt for his two missing sons.

Along the way he finds an unlikely ally in Lily, an orphan who offers to help him in exchange for learning the secrets of puppeteering. The pair embark on a dangerous quest driven by hope, faith and a father’s love.

“’The War Has Ended’ is about a world reconstructing itself, finding its moral codes, and redefining the concept of family, Ben-Asher said. “The story of the war refugee has unfortunately become painfully relevant again, but I hope the optimism in this film can be an act of sanity in our chaotic world.”

Ramirez is a multi-award-winning Venezuelan actor and former journalist. He starred as Carlos the Jackal in the 2010 French-German biopic series Carlos, for which he won the Cesar Award for Most Promising Actor, and was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award for best actor.

He has appeared in Zero Dark Thirty and The Bourne Ultimatum, in addition to starring in Point Break, Gold, The Girl on the Train and Deliver Us From Evil.
