Kate Beckinsale will join Daniel Bruhl and Cara Delevingne in Michael Winterbottom’s new drama “The Face Of An Angel” for BBC Films.
Paul Viragh penned the script, based on the book by Barbie Latza Nadeau. Delevingne will play the suspect in a high-profile murder in Italy.
Beckinsale plays a journalist pursuing the case, while Bruhl plays a documentary filmmaker who’s also trying to get to the bottom of things.
The story is similar to the Amanda Knox case, but the focus of the film will be more on the media circus surrounding the trial than the crime itself.
Melissa Parmenter is producing, and filming begins shortly in Tuscany, Italy.
