Jamie Bell has joined the cast of the British new psychological thriller “Retreat” for Magnet Films reports Deadline.
Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton will play an estranged couple who head to a remote island getaway in an effort to rebuild their relationship. It’s likely Bell is replacing the previously attached David Tennant as a dying military officer who arrives on their doorstep with news of a viral pandemic killing millions on the mainland.
Carl Tibbetts will direct from a script he co-wrote with Janice Hallett, while Gary Sinyor will produce. Shooting is scheduled to kick off next month in Wales.
