Cruz, Moura, Bernal Join Assayas’ “Wasp”

Penélope Cruz, Gael García Bernal and former “Narcos” star Wagner Moura are set to join Pedro Pascal and Edgar Ramirez in the spy drama “Wasp Network” from acclaimed filmmaker Olivier Assayas (“Personal Shopper,” “Clouds of Sils Maria”).

The true story tale follows Cuban spies in American territory during the 1990s, revealing the tentacles of a Florida-based terrorist network with ramifications in Central America and with the consent of the U.S. government.

Assayas penned and helms the film based on Fernando Morais’ novel “The Last Soldiers of the Cold War”. Charles Gillibert and Rodrigo Teixeira are producing and shooting is set to begin in early 2019.
