Martin Freeman joins spy thriller The Operative

The Sherlock actor will play an undercover agent in the upcoming international espionage thriller

Published: 07th May 2018

Actor Martin Freeman is set to star opposite Diane Kruger in The Operative, an international espionage thriller. The film is written and is being directed by Yuval Adler.

Martin will play Thomas, a former handler to Kruger's character, Rachel, recruited by Israeli intelligence agency Mossad to go undercover in Tehran. The only clue to Rachel's whereabouts is a cryptic phone call she places to Thomas, who is then summoned from Germany to Israel by Mossad.

Production on the film will start in Israel in June, before shifting to Bulgaria and Germany.

The Operative was adapted from the Israeli book The English Teacher, written by former Israeli intelligence officer Yiftach Reicher Atir and based on real-life stories of Mossad operatives.
