Ciaran Hinds and Tom Wilkinson have joined the John Madden-directed Mossad-Nazi thriller “The Debt” for Miramax Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
Matthew Vaughn, Jane Goldman and Peter Straughan penned the script which tells the fictional story of how three young Israeli Mossad agents on a secret mission capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal in 1965.
Thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi surfaces in Ukraine, and one of the former agents must go back undercover to seek out the truth.
Jessica Chastain has also joined the cast, playing a younger version of Helen Mirren’s Mossad agent Rachel Singer. Hinds and Wilkinson play fellow Mossad agents.
Sam Worthington, Marton Csokas, Jesper Christensen and Romi Aboulafia also star. Shooting recently kicked off in London before moving on to Budapest and Tel Aviv.
