Jack O'Connell has signed on to play a jaded commercial director in Don Quixote, a satirical take on Miguel de Cervantes' classic novel.
The Black List script from Aaron Berg focuses on the formation of British spy agency MI6 and its first director, Sir George Mansfield Cummings.
War is in Jack O'Connell's blood in this action-adventure from director Noam Murro. The battle against Xerxes' evil army begins in theaters next March.
The actor is reportedly up for one of the many unspecified roles. He is believed to have already met with J.J. Abrams as casting continues on this sequel.
The actor plays Calisto in director Noam Murro's follow-up to the 2007 blockbuster 300, in theaters March 7, 2014.
