Universal has officially released the first trailer and new images for upcoming political drama “Frost/Nixon“.
Adaptation of the hit Peter Morgan (The Queen, The Other Boleyn Girl) play based on a series of televised interviews that David Frost secured with former President Nixon in 1977. The final interview ended with Nixon tacitly admitting his guilt regarding his role in the Watergate scandal. Frank Langella and Michael Sheen are reprising their Broadway roles as Nixon and Frost, respectively. Kevin Bacon will play Nixon’s chief of staff Jack Brennan.
Frost/Nixon is directed by actor and filmmaker Ron Howard (Backdraft, Apollo 13, Ransom, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code).
The film is scheduled to hit theaters on December 5th, in limited release.
