Richard Gere, Topher Grace See “Double”

Richard Gere and Topher Grace are teaming for the espionage thriller “The Double” for Hyde Park and Imagenation Abu Dhabi says Variety.

Gere plays a retired CIA operative who is reactivated to find the Soviet assassin Cassius, a killer long thought to be dead who seems to be behind the recent murder of a senator.

Grace would play a young FBI agent teamed with the former operative who spent much of his career tracking Cassius down.

Michael Brandt, co-writer of the “3:10 to Yuma” remake and “Wanted”, makes his directorial debut on the project which begins filming this June in Detroit.
