Gainsbourg and Bonneville to Lead Female Spy Thriller ‘Lives in Secret’

Charlotte Gainsbourg and Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) are set to star in WWII female spy thriller Lives In Secret from Resident Evil producer Jeremy Bolt.

Paris-based sales firm Other Angle will be selling the project at this week’s virtual EFM.

Gainsbourg plays World War Two intelligence officer Vera Atkins, who made it her mission to discover the fate of missing agents she had dispatched to Occupied France after the conflict.

The feature is adapted from the Sarah Helm’s A Life in Secrets, telling the true story of Atkins, an intelligence officer for Special Operation Executive’s French Section who trained and dispatched hundreds of agents to Occupied France, many of whom didn’t return.
