Michael Douglas will star as Reagan, and the role of his Russian counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev will be played by Django Unchained actor Christoph Waltz.

Reykjavik picks up towards the end of the Cold War in 1986, when peace talks between Reagan and Gorbachev were in full swing.

Langella recently completed filming on Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco, in which he will appear with Nicole Kidman.

Reykjavik will begin shooting in Iceland in March.
