Diane Lane Joins Liam Neeson’s Spy Thriller ‘Felt’

Diane Lane has joined Liam Neeson in Peter Landesman’s spy thriller “Felt,” with shooting set for March.

Neeson came on board this week as special agent Mark Felt, who revealed himself as “Deep Throat” — the key source during the Washington Post’s investigation into the Watergate break-in by White House employees.

Lane will play Felt’s brilliant, ambitious and troubled wife, Audrey. She shoulders the burden of Felt’s isolated and dangerous struggle against the White House.

Landesman will direct from his own script and produce.

MadRiver Pictures will finance and produce, alongside Scott Free Productions, Playtone and Cara Films. Ridley Scott, Gary Goetzman, Tom Hanks, Giannina Scott, Marc Butan, Christopher Woodrow and Jay Roach will produce. Steven Shareshian and Michael Schaefer will executive produce alongside Michael Bassick and Steven Marshall.

CAA arranged the financing and is currently selling the domestic rights at the American Film Market. Sierra/Affinity is handling the foreign rights.

Lane can be seen next in “Trumbo” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” She is repped by UTA.
