The Debt Filmmakers: Evan Eitan

The producer of the original and English-language remake of THE DEBT knows a little about spy films. So we asked him to tell us (without any enhanced interrogation techniques) which were his favorite ones.

Evan Eitan is a producer behind a number of award-winning Israeli films, including the 2007 original version of THE DEBT (called HA HOV). His full bio can be found here. In seeing the connection to other classic spy films, Eitan notes, "THE DEBT easily could be a true story. A Mossad spy or operative needs to have in his DNA braveness, fitness, cleverness, witty personality, knowledge, top combat abilities, and fluent foreign languishes, because they mainly will operate and take the most dangerous risks because of idealistic reasons."  Eitan gave us five other examples of spy films he admires (for which we have provided short descriptions).
