NO SALES OR SYNDICATION ALLOWED without the prior approval from Ina Treciokas at Slate PR. (310) 461-0102, (310) 691-6225 (cell) ina@slate-pr.com.--LOS ANGELES, CA. NOVEMBER 10, 2013--Actor Harrison Ford talked about his current movies and Oscar contending roles. (Kirk McKoy / Los Angeles Times.)


Fresh from his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Harrison Ford will be joining the cast of Justin Chadwick’s Official Secrets, the adaption of Marcia and Thomas Mitchell’s best-selling book, The Spy Who Tried To Stop A War: Katherine Gun and The Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion – the mouthful of a title adapted by Sara and Gregory Bernstein and produced by Elizabeth Fowler.


Paul Bettany, Natalie Dormer, Martin Freeman, and Sir Anthony Hopkins will be joining Ford in the cast for the espionage thriller, the studio releasing the official synopsis:


“In the run up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Katharine Gun (Dormer), a young British intelligence officer reveals a secret illegal NSA spy operation against the UN Security Council designed to ensure passage of a resolution for war to Martin Bright (Bettany) a reporter at the British newspaper, The London Observer.


Katharine’s arrest following the leak makes headlines around the world. In an attempt to gain the evidence to free Katharine, Martin unearths the shocking plot which puts both Katharine and Martin’s lives in great jeopardy. Freeman will be playing Peter Edwards, the foreign affairs editor at The Observer, while Hopkins is playing a retired UK general, and Ford, a CIA agent.”
