Tim Blake Nelson, Ted Levine, Michael C. Hall, Ben McKenzie, and Matthew Rhys have joined the independent CIA drama “The Torture Report.”

Previously announced cast include Annette Bening, Adam Driver, and Jon Hamm. IMR International is launching foreign sales at the Cannes Film Festival. Production began last week in New York.

Scott Z. Burns is directing from his own script. Vice Studios is producing and financing for the project, which centers on the CIA’s extreme interrogation program on detainees following the 9/11 attacks.

Along with Burns, producers are Danny Gabai, Eddy Moretti, Jennifer Fox, Michael Sugar, Steven Soderbergh, and Kerry Orent. UTA is repping North American rights to the film.

Burns has written screenplays for “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “The Informant!,” “Contagion,” and “Side Effects.” He was a producer on “An Inconvenient Truth,” which won the Academy Award for best documentary feature in 2006.

Nelson’s credits include “O Brother, Where Art Thou?,” “Lincoln,” and “Fantastic Four.” Levine currently stars in TNT’s “The Alienist.” Hall is best known for the series “Six Feet Under” and “Dexter.” McKenzie currently stars in Fox’s “Gotham.” Rhys stars in FX’s “The Americans,” which is in its sixth and final season.

Nelson is represented by UTA and Gateway Management Company; Levine is repped by Kass Management; Hall is repped by UTA and Authentic Talent and Literary Management; McKenzie is repped by CAA, Management 360, and PJ Shapiro at Ziffren Brittenham, Branca and Fischer; Rhys is repped by United Agents, WME, and Management 360.

IMR is handling sales on David Robert Mitchell’s “Under the Silver Lake,” starring Andrew Garfield and Riley Keough, which will have its world premiere in competition in Cannes. The slate also includes: “What Is Life Worth” with Michael Keaton; Jacques Audiard’s “The Sisters Brothers,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Joaquin Phoenix; Anne Fletcher’s “Dumplin,'” starring Jennifer Aniston; “Borderland,” starring Jamie Dornan and Sam Claflin; and “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife,” starring Bette Midler and Sharon Stone.
