Janet McTeer, Eddie Marsan, and Ben Daniels have been added to the cast of “The Kaiser’s Last Kiss.” They join a cast that includes Lily James (“Cinderella”), above, Jai Courtney (“Suicide Squad”) and Christopher Plummer as Kaiser Wilhelm II.
The fictitious look at the former German leader’s last days finds the man who helped ignite World War I exiled in the Netherlands as a new global battle rages. Following Germany’s 1940 invasion of Holland, the Kaiser becomes embroiled in an elaborate work of espionage by the Dutch resistance.
In addition to the new cast members, Silver Reel has come on board to finance the picture. Film House Germany’s Egoli Tossell Film put the picture together.
McTeer is an Oscar nominee for “Albert Nobbs” and “Tubleweeds.” She is represented by Curtis Brown Group and MGMT Entertainment. Marsan has etched memorable supporting roles in “Sherlock Holmes” and on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” He is repped by Markham, Froggatt and Irwin and UTA. Daniels has appeared in “Locke” and “Jack the Giant Slayer.” He is repped by Hamilton Hodell and Gersh.
The finance deal was negotiated by Ian Hutchinson from Silver Reel, who is represented by David Quli and Neil Gillard from Wiggin LLP. (Variety)
