The spy thriller Agent Game, that Nighthawks director Grant S. Johnson will direct, has now rounded out its cast, as announced by Deadline. Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend’s Wedding), Katherine McNamara (Shadowhunters, Arrow), Rhys Coiro (Straw Dogs), Annie Ilonzeh (Peppermint), and Oscar-winner Mel Gibson are all now on board the project.
Mike Langer (Burying Yasmeen) and Tyler W. Konney (Money Plane) wrote the script. Set in the dark tangled web of CIA renditions. Harris (Mulroney), a CIA officer, engaged in missions to arrest and evacuate to relocate foreign nationals for questioning. When the political change in Washington shifts his partners into rivals, Harris finds himself the scapegoat for a detainee’s assassination and has to escape from a squad of agents sent to bring him in (McNamara and Coiro) let by a merciless double agent (Ilonzeh). Deadline learned that Gibson would have a small role in the spy thriller as an intelligence official in charge of running the unsanctioned covert operation to hunt down the disgraced spy.
Mulroney is currently in the midst of filming The Inhabitant and The Virgin of Highland Park. McNamara has a recurring role in the TV series The Stand, an adaptation of the Stephen King novel on CBS. Coiro was cast in the action thriller One Way that is in post-production. Ilonzeh finished filming for Deon Taylor’s horror film Don’t Fear. Gibson recently starred in action movie Dangerous and action thriller Panama.
