Martin Freeman Joins Diane Kruger In THE OPERATIVE



BLOOM announced today that Emmy Award Winner and Golden Globe® Nominee Martin Freeman (Black Panther, The Hobbit) will star alongside Diane Kruger (In the Fade, Inglorious Bastards) in Yuval Adler’s espionage-thriller The Operative. Principal photography is set to commence in Israel and Bulgaria this coming June. Based on a screenplay by Adler, which was adapted from the Israeli best-seller The English Teacher, written by former Israeli intelligence officer Yiftach Reicher Atir, culled from the real-life stories of Mossad operatives.

The Operative follows the story of Rachel (Kruger), a rogue spy from Israel’s feared national intelligence force Mossad, vanishes without a trace while attending her father’s funeral in London. The only clue to her whereabouts is a cryptic phone call she places to her former handler Thomas (Freeman), who is then summoned from Germany to Israel by Mossad. With Rachel’s life immersed in her assignments as part of a vast espionage effort against Iran’s nuclear program, Thomas must retrace her steps to determine what threats she may now pose to their operation, while also working to protect her.
