Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts Join Jennifer Lawrence’s Spy Thriller ‘Red Sparrow’

Jeremy Irons and Matthias Schoenaerts have joined Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton in Fox’s spy thriller “Red Sparrow.”

Francis Lawrence, who helmed the final three films in the “Hunger Games” franchise, is re-teaming with Jennifer Lawrence for his latest directional effort. Fox has already dated “Red Sparrow” for Nov. 10, 2017.

The film is based on Jason Matthews’ novel of the same name. Justin Haythe re-wrote the script, originally by Eric Warren Singer. Chernin Entertainment is producing.

The book is set in modern-day Russia in the intelligence bureaucracy with a young woman drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a trained seductress assigned to operate against a first-tour CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers fall into a spiral of attraction and deception that results in her leading life as a double agent.

Irons will next star in “Assassin’s Creed” and reprise his role as Alfred in Warner Bros.’ “Justice League.”

Schoenaerts’ recent credits include Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl” and “A Bigger Splash.” He’s also in Netflix’s upcoming movie “Our Souls at Night” with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

Irons is repped by CAA. Schoenaets is repped by CAA and UBBA in Paris.
