Ansel Elgort To Seek “Code Name Veil”

“The Fault in Our Stars” and “Divergent” actor Ansel Elgort is attached to star in Michael Cuesta’s new 1980s Beirut-set drama “Code Name Veil” at Black Label Media.

Inspired by real events, a rookie CIA agent (Elgort) investigates the attacks against the U.S. Embassy and Marine barracks during the 1983 bombings in Beirut.

When his station chief is taken hostage, he finds himself turning to desperate measures to save his mentor.

Matt Billingsly penned the script which made the 2008 Black List. Trent Luckinbill, Thad Luckinbill and Molly Smith are producing.
