Last year serving us an absorbing adventure led by Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson, with ‘The Lost City Of Z’. James Gray is now all set to enter the world of espionage.
It has been confirmed today that the director has been snapped up by MGM, to bring the Terry Hayes trilogy ‘I Am Pilgrim’ to the big screen, a project which has been considered high priority by the company for some time. Hardly a surprise, considering their success within this genre already through the longevity of James Bond.
‘Pilgrim revolves around an adopted son of a wealthy American family, who previously headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence, writing a book on forensic criminal investigation before entering retirement. Yet it’s a book that soon comes back to haunt him, triggering a race-against-time scenario to save the country from oblivion.
Ever the chameleon. Up next for ‘Gray is science-fiction thriller ‘Ad Astra’, boasting Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and Ruth Negga, which is scheduled to be released in January 2019.
