Operation Mincemeat to film in December
A new WWII film starring Colin Firth will film in London from December.
Operation Mincemeat is from See-Saw Films and Cohen Media Group with Archery Pictures.
Director John Madden will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Michelle Ashford, based on a book by Ben Macintyre of the same name.
Based on real-life events, the story centres on two intelligence officers who used a dead body and false papers to outwit German troops in 1943.
The producers are See-Saw’s Iain Canning and Emile Sherman, Archery Pictures’ Kris Thykier and Charles S. Cohen.
