Ms. Gun

Now that she’s ventured into The Forest with disappointing results, Natalie Dormer is sticking to dem ensembles.

Indeed, the Game of Thrones player has joined the cast of Official Secrets, a new spy thriller that also will feature Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Paul Bettany, and Martin Freeman.

Based on Marcia Mitchell’s The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, the project will center on Katharine Gun (Dormer), the British intelligence officer who leaked info to the press about an NSA spy op allegedly meant to apply pressure to the U.N. Security Council and get them to sanction the invasion of Iraq.

Ford will play a CIA agent, while Hopkins will portray a retired British general. Bettany and Freeman will take on the roles of the two London Observer journalists that received the intel.
