Tom Hollander has joined the cast of the independent drama “A Private War” opposite Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan with shooting starting this week in Jordan, followed by a move to the U.K. early next year.

The casting was unveiled Tuesday along with Matthew George’s Acacia Entertainment announcing it will produce and finance “A Private War” alongside the Fyzz Facility, which is executive producing.

The biographical drama will be directed by Matthew Heineman, whose credits include “Cartel Land” and “City of Ghosts,” from an Arash Amel screenplay. Academy Award-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson is also on board.

“A Private War” chronicles the life of American-born British war reporter Marie Colvin and is based on Marie Brenner’s 2012 Vanity Fair story “Marie Colvin’s Private War.” Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, Kamala Films’ Marissa McMahon, and Charlize Theron under her Denver & Delilah Productions banner are producing alongside Acacia Entertainment and Savvy Media Holdings.
