Did you think Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy had too many lead characters and also too many British spies? You are wrong. Also, this is not the movie for you! Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Dormer, Paul Bettany, and Martin Freeman have joined the cast of Official Secrets, which will apparently be one of those spy movies where you give up on remembering all the characters’ names in the first 15 minutes. Based on Marcia Mitchell’s book, The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, the film centers on Katharine Gun (Dormer), a British intelligence officer who leaked information to the press about an alleged NSA operation to push the U.N. to sanction the invasion of Iraq. Bettany and Freeman will play journalists at the London Observer, while Hopkins will be a retired U.K. general (so basically himself), and Ford will play a CIA agent. Official Secrets starts filming in May.
