Richard Gere and Topher Grace will star in Hyde Park and Imagenation Abu Dhabi's espionage thriller "The Double."

Michael Brandt, who co-wrote scripts for "Wanted" and "3:10 to Yuma" with Derek Haas, will be making his directorial debut with this thriller. Brandt also co-wrote the script with Haas.

Movie centers on a mysterious murder of a U.S. senator bearing the marks of a Soviet assassin code-named "Cassius," who was long thought to be dead. A retired CIA operative (Gere), who spent his career in direct confrontation with his Soviet nemesis, teamed with a young FBI agent (Grace) to hunt him down.

Hyde Park's chairman Ashok Amritraj and exec-VP of production Patrick Aiello are co-producing with Haas and Industry Entertainment's Andrew Deane. Imagenation's chairman Mohamed Khalaf Al-Mazrouei and CEO Edward Borgerding are executive producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in June in Detroit.
