The Rami Malek-led CIA thriller Amateur will have more than the Oscar-winning actor to boast about. Deadline reports Malek has been joined in the cast by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, Belfast actress Caitríona Balfe, and Laurence Fishburne.
Amateur stars Malek as a cryptographer who blackmails his CIA bosses into training him to get revenge on the terrorists who killed his wife. The latest script comes from American Made writer Gary Spinelli, with Slow Horses filmmaker James Hawes directing.
There have been a lot of rumors swirling around Brosnahan lately, as she’s reportedly up for the Lois Lane role in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy. If she gets that, it could disrupt any other projects she has lined up. Balfe hasn’t starred in any feature films since Belfast, so it’ll be good to see the Outlander star back on the big screen. Fishburne can be seen in theaters now as the Bowery King in John Wick: Chapter 4.
