355 is back on track.
The film — which marked last year’s biggest sale at the Cannes market but hit a roadblock when one of its stars, Fan Bingbing, became embroiled in a tax evasion scandal in her native China — has filled out its cast with Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.
The duo join Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz and Fan in the action pic about a group of female spies who must bond together to stop an event from occurring that could thrust the world into total chaos. They form a faction code-named 355, a shout-out to the first female spy in the American Revolution.
Marion Cotillard, who was part of the Cannes presentation last year as one of the film’s stars, has since dropped out, citing personal reasons.
The film, which was acquired by Universal and will be directed by Simon Kinberg, is set to begin principal photography in Paris in July. Shooting also will take place in London and Morocco.
Chastain is producing through her Freckle Films banner alongside Kelly Carmichael and Kinberg. Theresa Rebeck, whose credits include NBC’s Smash, wrote the screenplay.
Stan is currently onscreen in Avengers: Endgame and recently appeared in I Tonya. He is repped by ICM and Brookside Artist Management.
Ramirez recently starred in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. He is handled by CAA and Impression Entertainment.
