Sam Riley targeted for lead role in Bond scribes 'SS:GB' movie

10-Aug-2015 • Actor News

Sam Riley is in talks to star in SS:GB, the Len Deighton adaptation that James Bond scribes Neil Purvis and Robert Wade are writing. No deal has been set yet but this is a plum role in what is fast gearing up to be a prestige project - reports Deadline.

SS:GB is set in a UK conquered and occupied by Germany during World War II. The title refers to the branch of the Nazi SS that controls Britain. Detective Superintendent Douglas Archer, a British homicide detective assigned to Scotland Yard, is called in to investigate a murder of a well-dressed man. To his surprise, the case draws the attention of the highest levels of the German government. Archer soon finds himself in the middle of a struggle between powerful forces. Filming is set to begin in the fall.
