Netflix has unveiled a new trailer and poster for their upcoming spy thriller, THE ANGEL, which depicts the true story of Ashraf Marwan, who was President Nasser's son-in-law and special adviser and confidant to his successor Anwar Sadat – while simultaneously Israeli Intelligence's most precious asset of the 20th century.

Based off the New York Times best-selling novel The Angel: The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel by Uri Bar-Joseph, THE ANGEL stars Marwan Kenzari (BEN-HUR, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS), Toby Kebbell (DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, FANTASTIC FOUR),  Hannah Ware (OLDBOY, HITMAN: AGENT 47), Waleed Farouq Zuaiter (THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, LONDON HAS FALLEN), Maisa Abd Elhadi (THE WORTHY, PERSONAL AFFAIRS), Sasson Gabai (RAMBO III, THE ORDER), Miki Leon (HOSTAGES, WALTZ WITH BASHIR), Ori Pfeffer (PRINCESS, HACKSAW RIDGE) and Slimane Dazi (A PROPHET, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE).

The upcoming Netflix thriller is helmed by THE ICEMAN and CRIMINAL director Ariel Vromen, who will shoot based off a script penned by CHILDREN OF MEN scribe David Arata.

THE ANGEL will make its global Netflix debut September 14, 2018.
