Cannes: Lily James Starring in Thriller ‘The Kaiser’s Last Kiss’

In a pre-Cannes move, “Cinderella” star Lily James has come on board spy thriller “The Kaiser’s Last Kiss” opposite Christopher Plummer as the titular Kaiser.

Egoli Tossell Film has tapped David Leveaux to direct from a script by Simon Burke, based on the novel by Alan Judd. Lotus Entertainment will begin selling international markets at Cannes.

Production companies are Egoli Tossell Film and Ostar Enterprises. Producers are Judy Tossell and Lou Pitt; Bill Haber and Phil Geier are exec producing.

James will play an agent in the World War II Dutch resistance, which is working covertly with Winston Churchill to insert an agent into the Kaiser’s household. A dangerous love affair ignites between a German officer and the agent as the Nazis race to identify and eliminate the agent to block the potentially disastrous defection of their former emperor to England.

Plummer will next be seen in Atom Egoyan’s “Remember,” which is also co-produced by Egoli Tossell, and most recently appeared in Dan Fogelman’s “Danny Collins.”

Leveaux is best known for his work on Broadway, having been nominated for a Tony Award five times.

James is represented by Tavistock Wood and UTA. Plummer is represented by Markham, Froggatt, Irwin, ICM Partners and the Pitt Group. Leveaux is repped by CAA.
