‘Divergent’s Theo James In Early Talks To Join ‘Backstabbing For Beginners’
EXCLUSIVE: Divergent‘s Theo James is in early talks to join the cast of Per Fly’s Backstabbing For Beginners. The project is a political thriller inspired by international relations veteran Michael Soussan’s memoir Backstabbing For Beginners: My Crash Course In International Diplomacy. If a deal gets done, James will star opposite the previously announced Ben Kingsley. Josh Hutcherson had originally been set to play that role. Parts & Labor, Creative Alliance, and Scythia Films are producing with Fortitude International handling international sales.
Set up as an official Danish/Canadian co-production, and co-written by Daniel Pyne (The Manchurian Candidate) and Fly, the film starts shooting soon. UTA is repping domestic rights. eOne has already nabbed all rights in Canada.
James would play Michael, a young idealist who lands his dream job as a program coordinator for the UN’s Oil for Food program. He is thrown into an already fraught post-war Iraq where government agents and power-hungry countries are circling the country’s oil reserves like sharks. He seeks answers from the one person he thinks he can trust, Pasha (Kingsley), his boss, a seasoned diplomat. The more Michael learns, however, the more he suspects a conspiracy at the highest level. The only way out will be to expose it all — risking his own life, his mentor’s career, and the life of the Kurdish woman he loves.
Fly last directed hit Swedish pic Monica Z and recently helmed the pilot for DR’s anticipated drama Follow The Money.
James has a number of projects in the pipelines: the Jim Sheridan directed The Secret Scripture opposite Rooney Mara and War On Everyone from John Michael McDonagh. He is also filming the next installment of the Divergent series Allegiant opposite Shailene Woodley as well as Underworld 5 opposite everyone’s favorite vampire Kate Beckinsale.
James is repped by WME and Markham, Froggatt and Irwin.
We would like to wish Theo a very Happy Birthday!
The holiday season is right around the corner, and James, the especially handsome face of Hugo Boss’ Boss scent, is ready to celebrate. Not only did the Divergent series actor pose for a series of “festive portraits” for Boss, he also chatted exclusively with Us about his plans for the most wonderful time of the year.
Read on to find out how James will be decking the halls this year.
Where will you be spending Christmas this year?
Probably in England with family. We have a big family, so we’re all there with everyone’s kids. It’s a fun time, a relaxing time — it’s very much an old-school Christmas.
Do you like to keep your Christmas on the traditional side?
Yes, [my family and I] do keep it traditional. It’s all about family and friends [being together] in a familiar environment. [But] sometimes it’s nice to go out for a drink or a long walk.
How would you describe your ideal Christmas?
Seeing everyone that you won’t get to see all year around. I have to be away quite a lot with my job, but Christmas is the time when everything slows down. People come back and connect. You’re able to spend a lot of time doing almost nothing, just spending time with the people that are most important to you.
Are you an early bird Christmas shopper?
I tend to shop on Christmas Eve. I used to try to be more organized, but now I think it’s just better to do it [the day before].
Have you ever received — or given — fragrances on Christmas?
Yes, I have both given and received, many times! I think it’s a nice, classic gift, one that people can use for the full year ahead.
What scent reminds you of Christmas?
The Christmas tree — the tree and a bit of mulled wine.
Do you have a New Year’s resolution in mind already?
To see my family more, and to live a healthy lifestyle.
