Lizzy Caplan joins Brad Pitt in Robert Zemeckis' WWII romance thriller
Deadline is reporting that Masters of Sex and THE INTERVIEW actress Lizzy Caplan has been added to the cast of director Robert Zemeckis' next movie, joining Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard and Jared Harris.
Caplan will play the sister to Pitt's character in the currently untitled World War II romance thriller (although it is being called FIVE SECONDS OF SILENCE over at IMDB), which will follow a pair of spies (Pitt and Cotillard) "who fall in love during a mission in Casablanca to kill a German ambassador. The duo marry, but domestic bliss is cut short when Pitt’s character, a French-Canadian, is informed his wife is a double agent working for the German government and he must kill her."
Zemeckis will direct the spy flick from a script by Steven Knight (LOCKE, EASTERN PROMISES), and filming is set to begin next week in Europe for its November 23, 2016 release.
Caplan can be seen next starring alongside Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Daniel Radcliffe in NOW YOU SEE ME 2 on June 10, 2016, while Masters of Sex Season 4 is expected to premiere on Showtime later this year.
