"Narcos" Star Wagner Moura to Play Famed UN Diplomat in Netflix Biopic

Synopsis: The untitled film tells the true story of Sergio Vieira de Mello (Wagner Moura), a Brazilian-born UN diplomat. Some thought of him as a "crisis junkie" who relished the chance to drop into the most intractable situations on the planet while others considered him a diplomatic superhero whose charm, negotiation skills and good looks enabled him to save countless lives. Sergio rose through the ranks to become the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Before he was tragically killed in a terrorist bombing in 2003, de Mello was widely considered to be the next UN Secretary General. As the world watches the dramatic efforts to save de Mello's life in the hours after an attack in Baghdad ordered by Osama bin Laden, he is forced to confront the dubious choices he has made during his personal life and career as the UN's "go-to man" for the hottest of hotspots in the world.

Adapted from Pulitzer Prize-winner Samantha Power's (former United States Ambassador to the United Nations) groundbreaking biography, "Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World."

Director: Acclaimed documentary director and Emmy Award winner Greg Barker (The Final Year, Manhunt: The Inside Story of the Hunt for Bin Laden)

Barker previously produced and directed the Emmy Award nominated documentary Sergio, which was an award winner at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival

This is Barker's first narrative feature

Writer: Academy Award nominee Craig Borten (Dallas Buyers Club)

Producers/Production companies: Brent Travers, Daniel Dreifuss (Academy Award nominated No) and Wagner Moura (Black Rabbit Media, Anima Pictures, Itapoan respectively)

Cast: Golden Globe Nominee Wagner Moura (Narcos), Ana De Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Garret Dillahunt (Widows, 12 Years a Slave, Fear the Walking Dead), Will Dalton (Loving), Clemens Schick (Casino Royale), and Tony Award, BAFTA Awards Winner and Emmy Award Nominee Br´┐Żan F. O'Byrne (Little Boy Blue, Mildred Pierce, Million Dollar Baby)
