Three own up to roles in 'Debt'


Jessica Chastain will play a young Helen Mirren in "The Debt," Miramax's Mossad-Nazi thriller being directed by John Madden.

Ciaran Hinds and Tom Wilkinson also have joined the film, which is shooting in London.

The script by Matthew Vaughn, Jane Goldman and Peter Straughan tells the fictional story of three Mossad agents who capture and kill a Nazi war criminal in 1965. Thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi surfaces in Ukraine, and one of the agents must go back undercover to seek the truth.

Mirren and Chastain are playing Mossad agent Rachel Singer in both eras.

"Debt" is being produced by Vaughn and Kris Thykier of Marv Films and Eduardo Rossoff.

Chastain, repped by Paradigm and Mosaic Media, next appears opposite Brad Pitt in Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life."

Wilkinson, repped by Lou Coulson Associates and Principal Entertainment, is shooting Roman Polanski's "The Ghost." UTA-repped Hinds next appears in "Race to Witch Mountain." (partialdiff)
