OUR KIND OF TRAITOR Casts Stellan Skarsgard, Naomie Harris and Damien Lewis

Shooting begins this month…

Stellan Skarsgård, Naomie Harris, and Damien Lewis are to star alongside Ewan McGregor in ‘Our Kind of Traitor,’ the long-gesting spy thriller based on the novel by John Le Carré.

The thriller sees McGregor and Harris playing Perry and Gail, a young English couple vacationing in Antigua who become entangled in the dealings of a Russian millionaire named Dima (Skarsgård). What they don’t know is that the charismatic Russian is a big-time money launderer seeking to defect to British intelligence before his vory (Russian criminal brotherhood) compatriots have a chance to take him out.

THR has ‘Homeland’ star Lewis playing a member of the British Intelligence Service.

Susanna White is behind the camera for the adaptation, helming from a script by Hossein Amini (‘Drive’). Filming commences this month in London with the backing of Studio Canal, Film4, Ink Factory and Potboiler Productions.
