ThePlaylist reports that Mads Mikkelsen (Pusher II, Casino Royale) and Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall, In Bruges) have joined Our Kind Of Traitors. The John Le Carre adaptation will be directed by Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders), scripted by Hossein Amini (Drive) with Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting, The Impossible) in the lead. It centers on a British couple (McGregor and ?) that get mixed up with a money-laundering Russian (Mikkelsen) while he's in the process of defecting.

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama, The Help) had been linked to play McGregor's wife but it's unknown if she'll end up in the film.
