Directed by Stath Lets Flats’ Tom Kingsley, the movie is based on an original script from Jurassic World’s Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow with British improv duo Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen. Set in London, Deep Cover sees three improv actors hired by the police. Their instinct to “always say yes” without breaking character leads them deep inside the capital’s criminal underworld.
“We’re delighted to be bringing this new action comedy to our customers”, said Tushar Jindal, Head of Content, UK for Prime Video. “With an incredible cast, a top-class creative team, and a fantastic script we know it’s going to be a hit.”
The film will be produced by Trevorrow via his Metronome Film Co. alongside Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (Men In Black). Annys Hamilton will co-produce.
