Edgar Ramirez and Pedro Pascal to star in Wasp Network
RT Features announced today that Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Edgar Ramirez (The Girl on the Train, Hands of Stone) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) will star in Wasp Network. Oliver Assayas (Personal Shopper, Clouds of Sils Maria) wrote and will also direct the film, which is based on Fernando Morais’ book, The Last Soldiers of the Cold War.
Wasp Network is the unbelievable true story of Cuban spies in American territory during the ’90s which reveals the tentacles of a terrorist network based in Florida with ramifications in Central America and with the consent of the US government.
Ramirez recently appeared as Gianni Versace in the Ryan Murphy-produced FX series American Crime Story, and has signed on to appear opposite Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt in Disney’s upcoming film Jungle Cruise.
Pascal is known for his iconic role as Javier Peña in the hit Netflix series Narcos and also recently starred as Whiskey in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Last month, he signed on to star opposite Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig in the much-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel.
RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira is producing alongside CG Cinema’s Charles Gillibert. RT’s Lourenço Sant’Anna and Sophie Mas are executive producing. IMR International will be introducing the film to foreign buyers in Cannes, with CAA Media Finance handling the US rights.
