Timothy Hutton has joined the cast of Roman Polanski’s The Ghost, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which begins shooting this week in Berlin, tells the tale of a ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) who is hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan). When he uncovers secrets, his own life is put in jeopardy.
Hutton plays the role of the prime minister’s American lawyer. Tom Wilkinson, James Belushi and Kim Cattrall also are in the cast.
The film is based on the book by Robert Harris.
