PARIS– Damian Lewis (“Homeland”) and Jeremy Northam have joined the cast of Susanna White’s contempo spy suspenser “Our Kind of Traitor.”

Produced by Studiocanal,Film4 and The Ink Factory, in association with Potboiler Productions, the elevated thriller also toplines Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard and Naomie Harris. Studiocanal handles international sales.

The script of “Traitor” was penned by Hossein Amini (“The Two Faces of January”), adapted from John le Carre’s novel. It centers on an English couple, Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) who get embroiled with a Russian oligarch called Dima (Skarsgard) while on holiday in Marrakech. Dima, who is also a high-profile money launderer, leads them onto a tortuous journey through Paris, the Swiss Alps and London.

Simon Cornwell and Stephen Cornwell at The Ink Factory produced with Gail Egan at Potboiler.The two companies recently teamed on the adaptation of le Carre’s “A Most Wanted Man,” which world-premiered at Sundance.

Potboiler’s credits also include the Oscar-winning adaptation of le Carre’s “The Constant Gardener.” Studiocanal is familiar with le Carre’s work, having produced Tomas Alfredson’s critically-aclaimed “Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy,” also based on one of his successful novels. “Spy” earned three Oscar noms and two BAFTA awards, among other accolades.

The 10-week shoot of “Traitor” will begin tomorrow on location in London and its suburbs, as well as Finland, Bern, Paris, the French Alps and Marrakech.

Script was developed by Studiocanal, Film4, Seadune Developments, Potboiler and The Ink Factory. Anton Capital Entertainment and Lovefilm backed the film.
