Exclusive : Will Bell and Bond’s M join Winter Queen?

Jamie Bell and Dame Judi Dench are being sought to play roles in director Fyodor Bondarchuk’s “Winter Queen”, an action adventure movie set to begin filming in September.
Milla Jovovich, playing a part not unlike the one she played in “The Three Musketeers”, is already onboard to play the films central femme fatale.

While the “Resident Evil” actress is a lock, neither Bell (“Jumper”) or 007 vet Dench are officially onboard. Just at the negotiation phase at this point.

Here’s the synopsis we’ve been provided :

St Petersburg, May 1886. What would cause a talented young student from a wealthy family to shoot himself in full view of the promenading public? Decadence and boredom, most likely, is what the commander of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Petersburg Police thinks, but he’s curious enough to send out the newest member of the Division, Erast Fandorin, a young man of irresistible charm, to investigate.
Fandorin – naïve and anxious to learn – vacillates between bold bravery and full on fear as he throws himself wholeheartedly into this mystery. Murder and deception compete with duels and reckless gambling as Fandorin finds himself entangled in the web of the mysterious beauty, Amalia Bezhetskaya, a femme fatale who enjoys playing with the emotions of her wealthy admirers.

Fandorin pursues Amalia to foggy London and back, getting himself in and out of deadly escapades. Is this all about money or are the murders and the attempts on Fandorin’s life part of an international terrorist plot? Is Amalia their siren like ambassador? In this nightmarish world, who can Fandorin trust?

Dench, one would imagine, would be a hard catch these days. Suppose it all comes down to the material. Bell’s no slouch either.
