Simon Russell Beale, Nikki Amuka-Bird to star in crime-drama The Outfit

BAFTA-nominated actors Simon Russell Beale and Nikki Amuka-Bird are the latest addition to the cast of Mark Rylance-led crime-drama The Outfit.
The film, which marks the directorial debut of The Imitation Game scribe Graham Moore, also features Dylan O'Brien, Zoey Deutch and Johnny Flynn.
Deadline reports that Moore has co-written the screenplay with actor-writer Johnathan McClain. The story follows Leonard (Rylance), an English tailor who crafts suits on London's world-famous Savile Row. "After a personal tragedy, he's ended up in Chicago, operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town where he makes beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford them: a family of a vicious gangster," reads the plotline.
Ben Browning of FilmNation Entertainment is on board as producer along with Scoop Wasserstein and Amy Jackson.
