James McAvoy will join Charlize Theron in the spy thriller “The Coldest City” for Focus Features, Denver and Delilah Productions, Oni Press and Sierra Pictures.
The story begins when an undercover MI6 officer turns up dead on the eve of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A female super spy by the name of Lorraine Broughton (Theron) must find the list he was smuggling into the West – a log containing the names of every espionage agent working undercover in Berlin.
David Leitch (“John Wick”) helms the project from a script by Kurt Johnstad. Filming is slated to kick off in November in Budapest and Berlin.
