The second trailer for The Debt, written by Kick-Ass duo Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, has been released online. The movie stars Sam Worthington (Avatar) alongside Jessica Chastain (from the upcoming Tree of Life), as well as Helen Mirren (last seen in Arthur) and Tom Wilkinson (The Green Hornet).
From Focus Features:
In this espionage thriller, shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Academy Award winner Helen Mirren) and Stefan (two-time Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds). Back in 1966, the trio (portrayed, respectively, by Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas, and Sam Worthington [“Avatar,” “Clash of the Titans”]) tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel (Jesper Christensen) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team’s mission was accomplished – or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.
The Debt is directed by John Madden, who is best known for Shakespeare in Love. Normally I might be concerned about a director known for historical romances working on an espionage movie; but I just saw Hanna, directed Joe Wright, who did Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, and it was fantastic. So I’ll reserve judgment until I see it.
The Debt was one of the films caught up in the death of Miramax last year however Walt Disney Studios, who merged with Miramix and are now in control of it’s slate, has now set an August 2011 release date for the US.
