Colin Farrell is attached to play Oliver North in a limited series about the Iran-Contra affair.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is in development and is headed to Amazon.
The miniseries will reunite Farrell with Yorgos Lanthimos who also directed "Lobster."
North was a National Security Council staff member. The Iran-Contra affair involved the illegal sale of weapons to Iran to encourage the release of US hostages held in Lebanon. North hatched the second part of the plan to divert proceeds from the arms sales to support the Contra rebel groups in Nicaragua, which was prohibited.
North is a former Fox News host of War Stories with Oliver North.
