Nikki Amuka-Bird and Simon Russell Beale have joined the cast of The Outfit. They join previously cast Mark Rylance, Dylan O’Brien, Zoey Deutch, and Johnny Flynn.
The Outfit follows Leonard (Rylance), an English tailor who used to craft suits on London’s world-famous Savile Row. But after a personal tragedy, he’s ended up in Chicago, operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town where he makes beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford them: a family of vicious gangsters.
The film is directed by Graham Moore in his directorial debut based on a script he co-wrote with actor-writer Johnathan McClain.
The crime-drama recently wrapped production in London.
