Richard Gere and Topher Grace see The Double
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Richard Gere and Topher Grace will be starring in the espionage film THE DOUBLE for director Michael Brandt. Gere will play a retired CIA agent that’s pulled out of retirement when a Senator is murdered by an infamous Russian assassin that was believed to be dead. He and a younger agent (Grace) have to team up to track down the killer. This will mark the directorial debut for Brandt, who has previously written the scripts for 3:10 TO YUMA and WANTED.
Richard Gere and Topher Grace in spy roles seems kind of odd to me. Maybe not so much for Gere, but Topher Grace as a CIA agent just doesn’t sound right. Of course, I say that before seeing him in PREDATORS, which might change my mind. Filming on THE DOUBLE starts in June.
