Directed by John Madden, whose previous films include The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Operation Mincemeat is based on the book of the same name by Ben Macintyre and follows the extraordinary true story of a wartime operation to invade the island of Sicily.
With troops already on their way to the island, the British receive word that the Nazis have discovered their plans and, in order to save the operation from certain disaster, embark on an elaborate ruse to fool the Germans into thinking that their real target is Greece, involving forged documents, a false identity, and a corpse.

Operation Mincemeat is due to arrive in UK cinemas in January 2022.
