Harrison Ford, Natalie Dormer And Paul Bettany Join Official Secrets

Harrison Ford, Natalie Dormer and Paul Bettany have all been added to Justin Chadwick’s Official Secrets cast and we can say it just got a whole lot more exciting.

The script for the movie which is based on the best-selling novel The Spy Who Tried To Stop A War: Katherine Gun and The Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion, would be written by Sara and Gregory Bernstein, and Elizabeth Fowler would oversee the production and other cast includes Martin Freeman and Anthony Hopkins.

Here is the official plot synopsis below:
In the run up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Katharine Gun (Dormer), a young British intelligence officer reveals a secret illegal NSA spy operation against the UN Security Council designed to ensure passage of a resolution for war to Martin Bright (Bettany) a reporter at the British newspaper, The London Observer. Katharine’s arrest following the leak makes headlines around the world. In an attempt to gain the evidence to free Katharine, Martin unearths the shocking plot which puts both Katharine and Martin’s lives in great jeopardy. Martin Freeman will be playing Peter Edwards, the foreign affairs editor at The Observer, while Anthony Hopkins is playing a retired UK general, and Ford, a CIA agent.

Chadwick is primarily a TV director who in recent years has tried his hand at feature films. His last effort, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom was an impressive outing that featured some great work from leading man Idris Elba. The director also has Tulip Fever in the can, which stars Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander and is being set up as a possible awards contender for later this year.
