Actor Michael Fassbender and director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are in negotiations to join Londongrad for Warner Bros.

The project is based on Alan Cowell's book Sasha's Story: The Life and Death of a Russian Spy, which centers on KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned in 2006. The spy accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of poisoning him, just before his death. Michael Fassbender will play Alexander Litvinenko if he signs on.

David Scarpa wrote the adapted screenplay which Rupert Wyatt will direct from. Johnny Depp will produce through his Infinitum Nihil banner, along with Graham King.

No production schedule was given for Londongrad.
