Naomie Harris And Damien Lewis Join Our Kind Of Traitor
With Skarsgard and McGregor in the Le Carre adaptation

Naomie Harris And Damien Lewis Join Our Kind Of Traitor

Last we heard, a year or so ago, Ralph Fiennes and Mads Mikkelsen were in talks for the John Le Carre adaptation Our Kind Of Traitor. But while Susanna White's spy thriller may have lost an M and a Le Chiffre along the way, it's now gained a Moneypenny. In a flurry of casting news, Naomie Harris has signed up, along with Damien Lewis and Stellan Skarsgard, to join the already-attached Ewan McGregor.

Le Carre's 2010 novel involves an Oxford academic and his barrister girlfriend holidaying on a Caribbean island. There they encounter a money launderer fleeing the Russian mafia with juicy intelligence on the banking sector and a plan to claim asylum in the UK. The ensuing globetrotting shenanigans take in Paris, Switzerland, London, Russia and Antigua.

McGregor and Harris are set to play the couple – Perry and Gail – with Skarsgard the ex-mobster Dima. Lewis will show up as a member of the British Intelligence Service.

Hossein Amini (47 Ronin, Snow White & The Hunstman) wrote the screenplay, and Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) was originally signed to direct, but was replaced by Susanna White (Generation Kill, Parade's End) last autumn. That was presumably down to a scheduling clash with Kurzel's Michael Fassbender-starring Macbeth, which is shooting now. White's cameras will roll next month.
