Deadline is reporting that Tom Felton has joined the cast of Stratton, which is based on the series of novels by ex-SBS agent Duncan Falconer. Dominic Cooper will be starring as Stratton alongside the likes of Tom Felton, Gemma Chan, Tyler Hoechlin, Thomas Kretschmann, Derek Jacobi, Connie Nielsen and Jake Fairbrother.

It is based on an eight-novel series by Duncan Falconer, a pseudonym for an author who used his own military background to inform the lead character. John Stratton is an operative of the SBS who works with the Intelligence Detachment in Northern Ireland. The character seems a strong fit for Cavill, starting out in Kazakhstan and China and moving to mainland Europe and London.

Shooting of the film begins next week in Italy followed by Rome and then the UK. There is no release date as of right now. It is unknown who Tom will be playing.
