Bryce Dallas Howard, Orlando Bloom and Sean Bean will star in Prime Video’s new film Deep Cover. More on that below. 


Prime Video has today announced their new film, Deep Cover, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Orlando Bloom, Sean Bean, Nick Mohammed, Ian McShane, Paddy Considine and Sonoya Mizuno.

The Prime original film (not to be confused with Bill Duke’s 1992 neo-noir of the same name) will begin production in the UK on Monday, 5th February. Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow have worked on the original script, with British improv duo Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen setting the script in London.

The film will follow “three improv actors hired by the police to help stage low-level stings. Their instinct to ‘always say yes’ without breaking character leads them deep inside the London criminal underworld.”

Trevorrow will also be producing the film under Metronome Film Co. and Tom Kingsley will be directing. 

“We’re delighted to be bringing this new action comedy to our customers”, said Tushar Jindal, Head of Content, UK for Prime Video in a press release. “With an incredible cast, a top-class creative team, and a fantastic script, we know it’s going to be a hit.”

Howard is currently starring in Matthew Vaughn’s Argylle, in which she plays the lead role of Elly Conway – a timid novelist who is whisked on an unbelievable adventure after her books begin to predict real life events. 

It looks like Deep Cover won’t be getting a theatrical release and will instead premier on Prime Video. Prime has recently introduced ads to its service – unless you’re willing to fork out a couple extra quid a month. 

No release date for Deep Cover yet, but, as always, we’ll keep you updated on that.
