First Look at Young Donald Trump in New Movie The Apprentice

The film will chart Trump’s rise to power in the 1970s and ’80s, including his “Faustian deal” with Roy Cohn

The first official image from Ali Abbasi’s forthcoming Trump biopic The Apprentice has been released. The film will follow Trump’s rise to power in the cutthroat world of New York real-estate in the 1970s and 1980s.

In the image, we see a young Trump, played by Sebastian Stan, taking a phone call in the back of a limousine. He is watched over menacingly by his mentor Roy Cohn, played by Jeremy Strong.

The film is described as a “dive into the underbelly of the American empire.” According to the official synopsis, the film “charts a young Donald Trump’s ascent to power through a Faustian deal with the influential right-wing lawyer and political fixer Roy Cohn.”

The film is written by Gabe Sherman. Director Ali Abbasi is best known for his film Holy Spider, about a serial killer who targets sex workers in Iran.

The Apprentice will premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival as one of the selections for the main competition.
