Back in February, it was reported that Diane Kruger and Eric Bana signing up to star in spy thriller The Operative. Things appear to have quickly changed for the film, with word that Martin Freeman will now instead join Kruger instead of Bana.
Deadline’s report on the latest casting makes no mention of Bana, instead putting Freeman in the role of Mossad agent handler Thomas. He’s summoned from Germany to Israel when his former operative turned rogue spy Rachel (Kruger) vanishes while attending her father’s funeral in London.
Her mission, at least before she disappeared, was to work against Iran’s nuclear programme and the authorities are concerned she may now pose a threat. Thomas will have to retrace her steps and try to protect her.
Writer/director Yuval Adler adapted the script from former Israeli intelligence officer Yiftach Reicher Atir’s bestseller The English Teacher and is scheduled to start filming next month in Israel and Bulgaria. (Source)

Diane kept it cool and casual while attending the H&M Selected by Diane Kruger Collection Launch held Berlin, Germany. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
“A few are really my favorite pieces. H&M introduced me to the summer collection very early and it was fun to pick out ‘my’ parts,” the 41-year-old actress told InStyle Deutschland.
“For me, the pieces are incredibly handy, because when I’m in New York, I often drive directly from the office to the country in the Hamptons over the weekend,” Diane continued. “You need clothes that work for both. So my absolute favorite is the white long dress. In the city, when it’s really hot, you can style it with a blouse or leather jacket, but it works on the beach as well.”

Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has gathered a pretty amazing cast thus far, between The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus in the main rule, The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Mads Mikkelsen, but it appears that one player in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 game has yet to be revealed – a mysterious female protagonist, who can be seen below, from Glam and Gore’s YouTube tutorial.)
Online rumours quickly reported that actress Diane Kruger could potentially be joining boyfriend Norman Reedus in in the cast of upcoming PlayStation 4 title Death Stranding. Speculation had been heating up that Kruger was potentially the female protagonist of the upcoming project. Particularly, after being photographed with Game Director Hideo Kojima during her visit to Tokyo while on a promotional run for her latest film, In the Fade.
Kruger has now calmed down the fan frenzy by confirming that while she is a big fan, she’s not a part of Death Stranding with an added hashtag “#eventhoughImabigfanImnotpartofDeath” to her Instagram.
Diane Kruger is set to join Julianne Moore in Bart Freudlich’s English-language re-imagining of Susanne Bier’s 2006 film, After the Wedding. Cornerstone Films, which announced the casting Thursday, is handling international sales on the film and will present it to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin.
The German actress, who won the best actress prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival for Fatih Akin’s In the Fade, will star as the manager of an orphanage in Calcutta, India, who has made it her life’s work to care for her wards. Desperately in need of money to keep the orphanage going, she believes she has found the perfect benefactor in the multi-millionaire founder of a successful media company (Moore). However, in order to receive the money, she must travel to New York to meet the woman behind the wealth. The gender-swapped character was played by Mads Mikkelsen in Bier’s Oscar-nominated original.
After the Wedding marks the fourth feature from husband-and-wife team Freundlich and Moore and their first since 2005’s Trust the Man. It will be produced by Joel Michaels and Silvio Muraglia for Paradox Studios, which is also financing. Production is scheduled to star in the spring. (Source)
