Justin Chadwick (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”) will direct the film, which will be produced by Elizabeth Fowler (“Devil’s Knot”). Production is slated to start in May in the U.K.

“Official Secrets” is based on a true story chronicled in the best-selling book “The Spy Who Tried To Stop A War: Katherine Gun and The Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion.”

Directed by: Gavin Hood
Starring: Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode, Indira Varma, Rhys Ifans

She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor. Based on world-shaking true events, Official Secrets tells the gripping story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq. Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the gut-wrenching decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm, expose a vast political conspiracy, and put Gun and her family directly in harm’s way.

It's hilarious that the cast has entirely changed since the initial announcement was made in the original post.

Saw this on a whim last week and thought it was well-made. Recommended if you like political thrillers. Good performances all around.
