ALLIED is the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
Brad Pitt stars alongside Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception) in Paramount Pictures and New Regency’s upcoming drama/thriller, Allied. The tandem plays a pair of assassins who fall in love, get married, and then discover that one is a double agent that the other must eliminate.
Pitt and Cotillard’s characters begin their relationship during a mission in 1942 Africa when tasked to kill a German ambassador. Dark and unsettling secrets from their past will make it difficult for them to be together, however.
Robert Zemeckis directs the spy thriller, while Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Raffey Cassidy, Charlotte Hope and Jared Harris also star in the flick, which is due in theaters on November 23, 2016.
