Bryan Singer to Develop Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Documentary (EXCLUSIVE)

Bryan Singer and Guy Shalem, in collaboration with Same Name Productions, are developing a documentary exploring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the vantage point of a dynamic Arab-Israeli activist.

Singer, known for his “X-Men” franchise, could possibly direct the film, marking his documentary directorial debut. The doc would also be one of the few he’s produced.

The movie, which has the working title “In the Middle of the Middle East,” will follow a young man as he navigates personal and political minefields, determined to advance a workable solution for coexistence in the Middle East, while searching for true peace within himself.

Yariv Horowitz (“Rock the Casbah”) is also set to co-produce. The movie is slated to bow in the fall of 2016.

Singer is directing “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which hits theaters on May 27, 2016. He is repped by WME.
