Sebastian Stan, Edgar Ramirez Join Jessica Chastain’s Spy Thriller ‘355’

Sebastian Stan, whose credits include “Avengers: Endgame” and “I Tonya,” and Edgar Ramirez, who has featured in “Gold,” “Assassination of Gianni Versace” and “Joy,” have joined the cast of Jessica Chastain’s spy thriller “355.”

Stan and Ramirez join the previously announced cast of Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz and Fan Bingbing. Simon Kinberg directs; the screenwriter is Theresa Rebeck from NBC’s “Smash” and the play “Dead Accounts.” Marion Cotillard is no longer attached to the project.

“355,” which begins principal photography on July 8 in Paris and also shoots in London and Morocco, was the biggest sale of last year’s Cannes with Universal acquiring U.S. distribution rights. CAA Film Finance brokered the deal with Film Nation handling international sales. The movie is produced by Freckle Films’ Chastain and Kelly Carmichael, alongside Kinberg’s Kinberg Genre.

“355” is a globe-trotting adventure that flips the espionage genre upside-down. Chastain, Nyong’o, Cruz and Fan play spies from international agencies around the world. These women must bond together, overcoming their suspicions and conflicts, to use all their considerable talents and training to stop an event from occurring that could thrust our teetering world into total chaos. Along the way, these strangers and enemies become comrades and friends, and a new faction is formed – code-named “355” (a name they adopt from the first female spy in the American Revolution).

Stan is repped by ICM and Brookside Artist Management. Ramirez is repped at CAA and Impression Entertainment. Rebeck is represented by ICM Partners and Manage-Ment; Kinberg is represented by CAA and attorney Karl Austen; Chastain is represented by CAA, Mosaic and Hansen Jacobson.
