Dominic Cooper Takes on the 'Most Dangerous Man Ever' in Spy Thriller 'Stratton' (Exclusive)
By John Boone
Dominic Cooper picked up a trick or two from his time on Agent Carter, it seems. Now that his tenure on the Marvel spy series is complete, it is Cooper's turn to play a secret agent in the upcoming action thriller, Stratton, and ET has the first trailer.
From this first look, it's clear Stratton has everything you'd want out of a flick about MI6: the threat of a biological weapon with millions of lives at stake, an accented villain vowing to get his revenge and a spy who has no respect for authority or the chain of command. To which Cooper's Stratton states, "I'm prepared to accept any penalties for violating protocol."
Stratton is based on novels of the same name and comes courtesy of The Expendables 2 and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider director Simon West. If that leaves you with any doubt the movie will be badass, it co-stars Tom Felton from Harry Potter and CW's The Flash, Tyler Hoechlin from Teen Wolf and Connie Nielsen, aka Diana's mother, Queen Hippolyta, in Wonder Woman.
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"Stratton, a Special Boat Service operative for MI6, and his American counterpart Marty, scope a laboratory complex in Iran in order to intercept deadly biochemical weapons. This most complex of missions goes spectacularly wrong however and in the mayhem Marty is mortally wounded. Stratton knows his trusted friend isn't going to make it. Back at base Stratton is summoned by the big boss at MI6. She has received intel that a former Soviet operative - Barovski - has gone rogue. Thought to be dead for the last 20 years, it is believed Barovski has plans to take revenge on his former paymasters by using stolen chemical weapons. From here on in, Stratton and his team must draw on all their training and experience to race against time and stop the unimaginable happening."
Stratton opens in theaters and is available digitally and On Demand on Jan. 5, 2018.
