NEW YORK (AP) — Jesse Eisenberg will play Marcel Marceau in "Resistance," a film written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz that focuses on the legendary mime's involvement in the French resistance during World War II. "From the biggest horror rises the most elevated art to save the lives of orphan children. The Venezuelan filmmaker, whose movie "Hands of Stone" premiered last year at the Cannes Film Festival, said he started doing research and writing the script last year, when he first spoke with Baptiste Marceau, the mime's oldest son, who will serve as an executive producer. ___ Follow Sigal Ratner-Arias on Twitter at https://twitter.com/sigalratner
