Jonathan Pollard story to be made into a Hollywood feature film, report says

Hollywood is set to commission a film based on the Jonathan Pollard case.

According to the web site Deadline Hollywood, a movie production company affiliated with Fox is developing a feature film whose plot will be based on the events leading up to the arrest and incarceration of the former US Navy analyst who passed sensitive information to Israel.

Pollard, who has spent 30 years in jail, is due to be released in November as per the decision of a federal parole board.

The movie will be produced by The Jackal Group, and it will be based on a play by Martin Blank titled The Law of Return. Gail Berman will co-produce the film along with Rory Koslow.

“I am looking forward to being reunited with my beloved wife Esther,” Pollard said through his attorneys earlier this week. “I would like to thank the many thousands of well-wishers in the United States, in Israel, and throughout the world, who provided grass roots support by attending rallies, sending letters, making phone calls to elected officials, and saying prayers for my welfare. I am deeply appreciative of every gesture, large or small.”

Pollard’s lawyers said that they are grateful and delighted that their client will be released soon. “The decision to grant parole was made unanimously by the three members of the Parole Commission, who make their decisions independently of any other US government agency. The decision is not connected to recent developments in the Middle East.”

Had Pollard’s parole been denied, he would have been required to serve an additional fifteen years in prison. His parole hearing took place July 7 at the Federal Correctional Center in Butner, North Carolina, where he has been incarcerated. He has been serving a sentence of life in prison for conspiracy to deliver classified information to the State of Israel.

    Jonathan Pollard:
    INFORMANT who – in 1987 pleaded guilty of spying for & providing top secret information to Israel.
    Exactly why do we care about this man ?
    Oh, they are going to make a movie – glorifying him ?
    Who – Israel ?
    And we care because …. ???
    It will be just another mediocre flick, like all the other second rate, flash in the pan, flicks that Israel produces.
    A waste of US dollars.
    I suppose they need to make Pollard feel that it was worth it.
    Giving 30 years of his life for his beloved Israel –
    Imagine 30 years locked up while the world lives outside.
    A movie will make Pollard feel better.
    But you know what I am wondering –
    How come Israel did nothing to have him released earlier ?
    Like – the US have done the “anything your heart desires is yours” loyalty routine to Israel
    The US has betrayed its very own people for Israel.
    Israel could have asked for Pollard to be released & the US would have let him go.
    So why didn’t Israel fight to have Pollard released years ago ?
    It isn’t possible that Pollard was somehow betrayed by Israel.
    Only that 30 years is such a long time, when they could have got him out.

    […] “Pollard Soon Coming To A Theatre Near You”  I’d cast Jason Alexander and give him the Oscar immediately, as there will be no contest.  It is the universal story of a brave whistle blower crushed by anti-Semitism. […]
