Chloe Sevigny and Rhys Ifans will star in Mr. Nice, the feature film adaptation of the 2002 best-selling autobiography of drug dealer and U.K. spy Howard Marks.
Ifans will tackle the role of Marks, who was once the most-wanted man in Britain. Marks was a graduate of Oxford University and was a teacher who drifted into drug dealing and smuggling as a way to impress his future wife, Judy, who will be played by Sevigny. David Thwelis will play an Irish Republican Army boss who hooks up with Marks. Marks was eventually recruited to be a loose informant for England's intelligence office and adopted the alias "Mr. Nice." He later spent seven years in prison and is said to have smuggled over 30 tons of marijuana in his life. No start date has been announced.
