Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton to star in Russian spy thriller Red Sparrow
Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton are to star in Red Sparrow, a new spy thriller.
The movie is an adaptation of Jason Matthews' bestselling novel, which follows Dominika Egorov, former prima ballerina turned state intelligence officer.
Despite her reservations, Egorov is drafted to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress in the service and asked to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. Edgerton is likely to play Nash.
The movie will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed Lawrence in three of the four Hunger Games movies. Snitch scribe Justin Haythe has written the script, Deadline reports.
There is no release date scheduled as yet.
