The hot priest is back and this time in a much darker, meatier role. HBO has released the first official trailer for the film adaptation of the award-winning play starring Ruth Wilson (The Affair) and Andrew Scott (Fleabag).

The official synopsis reads: "Oslo follows the secret back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics of a small but committed group of Israelis and Palestinians, plus one Norwegian couple, that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.

"Oslo stars Ruth Wilson as Mona Juul, a Norwegian foreign minister and Andrew Scott as Terje Rod-Larsen, a Norwegian sociologist and Mona’s husband.”

The powerful play landed in Broadway in 2017 and ended up winning the Tony Award for Best Play and Best Featured Actor in a Play award for Michael Aronov.

Also starring in the upcoming political drama are Israeli and Palestinian stage and screen actors including Salim Daw (Fauda), Waleed Zuaiter (The Spy), Jeff Wilbusch (Unorthodox), Igal Naor (Fauda), Dov Glickman (Shtisel), Rotem Keinan (Fauda), Itzik Cohen (Fauda), Tobias Zilliacus (Thicker Than Water) and Sasson Gabay (Sirens).
