“Kingsman” star Taron Egerton will team with British actress Rosamund Pike for the Matthew Heineman-directed thriller “A Private War”.
Set on the front lines of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, the story follows journalist Marie Colvin (Pike) who became one of the most celebrated war correspondents of her era.
Able to mingle with the elite of high-society and face down warlords, her coverage included works in the likes of Chechnya, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.
She lost her left eye in 2001, but continued working up until her death in a rocket attack in Syria in 2012. Egerton will play a journo with a military background that follows Colvin into multiple war zones.
Basil Iwanyk, Marissa McMahon and Charlize Theron will produce the project which begins filming in November.
