Carice van Houten joins Wikileaks pic

'Game of Thrones' thesp added to untitled DreamWorks feature

“Game of Thrones” star Carice van Houten is the latest international thesp to join DreamWorks’ untitled Wikileaks movie about Julian Assange, which Bill Condon is directing from a script by Josh Singer.

The Dutch actress joins British star Benedict Cumberbatch, Spanish-born German thesp Daniel Bruhl and Swedish starlet Alicia Vikander.

Cumberbatch stars as Assange, the Wikileaks founder who launched the whistleblowing site in 2006 and began antagonizing world governments by leaking embarrassing diplomatic cables and other state secrets, prompting the U.S. to seek to prosecute.

Bruhl plays his right-hand man Daniel Domscheit-Berg, whose book “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website” is one of two tomes to serve as the basis for the film along with DreamWorks’ other acquisition “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War On Secrecy,” by U.K. reporters David Leigh and Luke Harding.

Van Houten will play Birgitta Jonsdottir, an Icelandic journalist who becomes the default spokesperson for Assange and Domscheit-Berg. Jonsdottir is currently a member of parliament in Iceland.

Steve Golin, Michael Sugar and Bard Dorros are producing for Anonymous Content.

Van Houten, who currently plays Melisandre on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” starred opposite Tom Cruise in Bryan Singer’s “Valkyrie,” as well in Paul Verhoeven’s Oscar-nominated foreign film “Black Book.” She previously worked with Bruhl and Clive Owen on “Intruders.” Thesp is repped by CAA, Troika and nummer19
