Regal actress Helen Mirren will play an agent in the Israeli Mossad in The Debt, which will be directed by John Madden.
Miramax will distribute the film, an English language remake of the Israeli thriller Ha-Hov, worldwide. The film follows three Mossad agents who have been hunting and tracking a Nazi war criminal for over 30 years. Filming will begin next year in the UK.
Additionally, Mirren remains attached to star in another Jewish-themed film, an untitled project for Left Bank Pictures. The film is about a Jewish woman whose daughter embarks upon a romance with a Palestinian and is eventually shot to death. The project is languishing in development stages.
