“Westworld” star Thandie Newton and “Matrix” star Laurence Fishburne are joining Wonder Woman’s Chris Pine and Game of Thrones star Jonathan Pryce in upcoming spy/action drama All The Old Knives.
The spy/action drama from the stable of Amazon is an adaptation of Olen Steinhauer’s 2015 novel of the same name.
The movie follows ex-lovers Henry (Pine) and Celia (Newton) — one a CIA spy, one an ex-spy — who meet over dinner to reminisce on their time together at Vienna station. The conversation moves to the disastrous hijacking of Royal Jordanian Flight 127, which ended in the deaths of all on board. That failure haunts the CIA to this day, and Henry seeks to close the book on that seedy chapter. Over a sumptuous dinner, it becomes clear that one of them is not going to survive the meal, Variety reports.
Actor Pine will executive-produce, while Chockstone Pictures, Nick Wechsler Productions and Jackson Pictures in association with eOne will produce.
The movie is being directed by Borg McEnroe director Janus Metz while Steinhauer has adapted the screenplay from his novel.
Fishburne who recently landed an Oscar nomination for The Two Popes has also starred in John Wick, Pryce, The Color Purple, Boyz n The Hood, Man of Steel and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
