Jack O'Connell ("Starred Up," "Unbroken," "300: Rise of an Empire") has signed on to star as the younger lead in the Aaron Berg-penned spy thriller "Section 6" at Universal Pictures.
The story deals with the formation of British spy agency MI6 during World War I, and its first director Sir George Mansfield Cummings (the inspiration for M in the James Bond series).
No director or details on O'Connell's character are presently known. Lawrence Grey, Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will produce.
