Kingsley, Bellucci Join “Spider in the Web”

Ben Kingsley and Monica Bellucci are set to co-star in the counter-espionage thriller “Spider in the Web” from filmmaker Eran Riklis (“Lemon Tree”).

Set in modern-day Europe and inspired by true events, Kingsley plays a once lauded but ageing secret agent deemed past his prime by his superiors.

Itay Tiran stars as a young agent who is set to track him down, and crosses paths with the enigmatic Bellucci. In this world of deception, the question of who is hunting whom soon rises.

Gidon Maron and Emmanuel Nakkache penned the script and filming begins in the Spring in Belgium and Holland.
