John Madden sits in the director’s chair of the movie.
A trailer for Oscar-nominated director John Madden, who has produced films such as “Shakespeare in Love” and “Proof”, was shared from “Operation Mincemeat”, the movie about an absurd operation during the Second World War, the subject of which is taken from a real event.
Starring Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth, the film also stars Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Jason Isaacs, Penelope Wilton, Simon Russell Beale, and Johnny Flynn. The screenplay was adapted by Michelle Ashford from the book by Ben Macintyre.
“Operation Mincemeat,” tells the story of two clever intelligence officers who devise a plan to deceive the Nazis. In 1943 the Allies determined to launch an attack on Nazi-controlled Europe. Two brilliant intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen) devise an unlikely strategy to that end and decide to plant false documents on the body of a dead man in enemy waters to spread misinformation to the Axis powers. But not everyone in the British navy and intelligence hierarchy is convinced this trick will work…
“Operation Mincemeat,” which will be released in the UK next week, will be on Netflix from 11 May.
