Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, The Imitation Game) has joined Jonathan Mostow’s Hunter’s Prayer, alongside Sam Worthington and Odeya Rush. Adapted from Kevin Wignall’s novel For The Dogs by Paul Leyden, Oren Moverman, John Brancato and Michael Ferris, the film tells the story of Lucas, a hired assassin (Worthington) sent to target Ella (Rush). Instead, he bonds with her and cannot carry out his assignment. Lucas is then targeted, and the pair flee across Europe. Leech will play the role of Lucas’ former employer.

Leech stars as Tom Branson in Downton Abbey and can currently be seen as John Cairncross in The Weinstein Company’s The Imitation Game.

He is repped by Nigel Meiojas at ICM Partners and by Kat Gosling at Troika in the UK.
