“Game of Thrones” hunk Kit Harington and “Zero Dark Thirty” scene stealer Jennifer Ehle have joined the cast of “Spooks: The Greater Good,” the film adaptation of cult British spy drama “Spooks” (aka. “MI-5”).
When a terrorist escapes from MI5 custody during a routine handover, counterterrorism director Harry Pearce (Peter Firth) is saddled with the blame.
Soon after, when Pearce disappears off a bridge into the Thames river, an ex-MI5 operative and Pearce’s former protege Will Crombie (Harington) is called in to help uncover what happened.
With a devastating attack on London imminent, Will finds himself on the trail of a conspiracy that stretches from Vietnam to the Mediterranean.
Ehle will play the role of Dame Geraldine Maltby who is a part of MI5, though it’s not specified in what capacity. Both characters are new to the franchise.
Bharat Nalluri will helm from a script by Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent. Jane Featherstone and Stephen Garrett are set to produce, with filming to take place in the first quarter of 2014.
