Jon Voight Circling KGB Role in Ronald Reagan Biopic

One of Hollywood’s most prominent conservatives is in talks to play a Soviet agent charged with keeping tabs on the man who helped crush the USSR, President Ronald Reagan.

Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight is negotiating to play a pivotal role in “Reagan,” an upcoming movie about the 40th president.

Voight “would play a Soviet KGB agent whose job it was to track Reagan, the 40th U.S. president who is largely considered a hero of the Republican party,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is based on The Crusader and God & Ronald Reagan, two books by Paul Kengor.

The story unfolds as a young Russian leader visits a retired agent named Viktor – the character Voight is negotiating to play – so that he may learn of the demise of the Soviet Union….

The $35 million independent movie is being written by Jonas McCord (The Young RidersThe Body) and Howie Klausner(Space Cowboys). It is produced by Ralph Winter, who was behind the 2000-06 X-Men films, along with Mark Joseph, who produced the indie film Doonby in 2010 and was a marketing executive on such films as The Passion of the Christ,Holes and Ray.
