Fiennes and Mikkelsen to play a new spy game

Bond stars Ralph Fiennes and Mads Mikkelsen are slated to appear in an adaptation of John Le Carre's thriller Our Kind of Traitor.

The film - featuring Fiennes as a British government fixer and Mikkelsen as a crooked Russian oligarch - would follow hot on the heels of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, also made by StudioCanal.

Ewan McGregor has already been cast as one half of a couple who plans to defect but gets embroiled in a power struggle between the Russian mafia and British Intelligence.

Snowtown's Justin Kurzel will direct and Hossein Amini is writing the script.

Filming will take place in Moscow, Marrakesh, Paris, London and Switzerland and is planned to begin this summer.
