Rami Malek to star in Amateur, a CIA thriller set to be directed by James Hawes, best known for Slow Horses, Black Mirror & more.

Deadline has reported that Rami Malek is set to star in Amateur, a CIA thriller which James Hawes will helm.

Gary Spinelli wrote the most recent draft of Amateur, which follows “a CIA cryptographer who, after his wife is tragically killed in a London terrorist attack, demands his bosses go after them. He blackmails the agency to train him and let him do the same for them.” James Hawes is most well-known for his first season of Slow horses10 on Apple. Hawes also directed episodes of Raised By Wolves, Snowpiercer and Black Mirror, as well as Penny Dreadful10, and many more. No start date has been set for Amateur, but it could wind up being Rami Malek’s next project.

Before he sets his sights on Amateur, Rami Malek will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. Cillian Murphy plays J. Robert Oppenheimer. He is one of the fathers who developed the atomic bomb. Other stars include Emily Blunt and Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr. and Florence Pugh. It is one of the most anticipated films of the year. In true Christopher Nolan style, he used real explosives instead of using CGI to recreate the Trinity nuclear testing. Oppenheimer will hit theaters on July 21st.

The actor also recently signed on to play silent comedy icon Buster Keaton in a limited series for Warner Bros. Television. Deadline has learned that Matt Reeves will produce the Buster Keaton series under his 6th & Idaho Productions banner. Ted Cohen, Succession’s executive producer, is currently in negotiations to write the series. Producers are also in negotiations to obtain the rights to Busterkeaton: A Filmmaker’s Life10 by James Curtis. They intend to use it as the source material. Buster Keaton was a major actor and director of silent movies. His physical comedy and stunt work are still remarkable a hundred years later. After a series of two-reel comedies, Buster Keaton moved to feature-length films such as Sherlock Jr., The Cameraman, and The General, with the latter being regarded as his masterpiece
