The Australian actress will also star alongside Armie Hammer. The film is based on the 2008 attack on the Taj Mahal hotel in India, where a four-day siege by Islamic militants left 160 people dead and dozens injured.

Anthony Maras will direct from a script he co-wrote with Master and Commander scribe John Collee. 

Basil Iwanyk is producing through his Thunder Road banner alongside Arclight's Gary Hamilton and Mike Gabrawy. Andrew Ogilvie and Julie Ryan will also act as producers, with Kent Kubena and Jonathan Fuhrman executive producing.
