It looks like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker star Adam Driver is taking a break from his role as the Supreme Leader of the First Order so that he can work to uncover an international scandal in the new 9/11 thriller movie, The Report.
Amazon Studios and VICE just recently released the very first teaser for The Report, a dramatization of the real investigation that the US Senate made on the CIA’s human rights abuses as a response to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
In the video, we get to see Driver playing the role of Daniel Jones, the staffer of California Senator Dianne Feinstein, a character played by Annette Bening. Despite having such a low rank in the office, Jones eventually becomes a major player in discovering the ‘enhanced interrogation methods’ made by the CIA. Jones and Senator Feinstein have to fight to send their report on these torture methods out to the public with the government trying to keep the discovery under lock and key.
Driver’s new movie shouldn’t come as a surprise to Star Wars fans. While most would know him as the wayward son of Luke and Leia in the Star Wars franchise, Driver’s been in a lot of pretty great movies, starring in award-winning films like Paterson, BlacKkKlansman, and Hungry Hearts. It isn’t shocking to see him in a film with such gravitas as The Report.
Written and directed by Scott Z Burns, the scriptwriter for The Bourne Ultimatum, this new VICE movie, The Report, is slated for release on November 15, 2019.
