BBC Two has ordered Legacy, a one-off movie that will slot into its Cold War Moment block. Written by Paula Milne and directed by Pete Travis, the spy thriller reteams the duo whose 2009 apartheid drama Endgame won a Peabody Award. Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox, The Hour‘s Romola Garai, Sherlock‘s Andrew Scott and My Week With Marilyn‘s Simon Russell Beale are starring in the film that’s based on Alan Judd’s 2001 book. The story is set in 1970s London during the height of the Cold War when a young spy discovers the disturbing truth about his father’s complex past. Travis directed last year’s Dredd and scripted Sean Penn-starrer The Gunman. Crawford Collins, Milne and Judd are exec producing Legacy for Slim Film + Television; Lucy Richer is exec producer for the BBC and Rob Bullock is producer.
