Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, “The Tourist” is produced by GK Films in association with Spyglass, and is produced by Graham King, Tim Headington, Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum and Jonathan Glickman.

“The Tourist” is shooting on location in Venice, Italy. Sony will distribute the film.

Bettany’s recent credits include “Legion,” “The Young Victoria” and “Creation.” Sewell was recently seen in Wes Craven’s segment of “Paris je t’aime,” Michael Apted’s “Amazing Grace” and Nancy Meyer’s “The Holiday.”

“The Tourist” is written by Julian Fellowes, Christopher McQuarrie and Jeffrey Nachmanoff. Story revolves around an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart who is caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and danger when he pursues a romance with a woman who deliberately crosses his path.
