Bryce Dallas Howard, Orlando Bloom, Sean Bean, Nick Mohammed Set for Amazon Film ‘Deep Cover’

Amazon has ordered Deep Cover, a U.K. original action comedy movie starring Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Nick Mohammed (Ted Lasso), Ian McShane (John Wick), Paddy Considine (House of the Dragon) and Sonoya Mizuno (Maniac, House of the Dragon).

The Prime Video film sees three improv actors hired by the police to help stage low-level stings. “Their instinct to ‘always say yes’ without breaking character leads them deep inside the London criminal underworld,” according to a plot description.

Production begins Feb. 5 in London. Deep Cover will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide as part of the Prime subscription.

Based on an original script by Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World, Safety Not Guaranteed) with British improv duo Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen, the film will be produced by Trevorrow via his Metronome Film Co. alongside Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (Men in Black, Galaxy Quest). Annys Hamilton will co-produce. Tom Kingsley (Stath Lets Flats) will direct.

“With an incredible cast, a top-class creative team and a fantastic script, we know it’s going to be a hit,” Tushar Jindal, head of content, U.K. for Prime Video, said about Deep Cover.
