Watch Gemma Arterton and James Norton in the Rogue Agent trailer

Rogue Agent is the extraordinary and chilling story of career conman, Robert Freegard played by James Norton, with Gemma Arterton as Alice Archer, the woman who brought him down.

Freegard was a master manipulator who convinced countless victims he was undercover MI5 in order to extort and kidnap them. He was at large for many years until he met the woman who would end his career. Initially falling for his charms, she became the architect of his downfall and her actions led to his conviction and arrest. A tale of lies, loyalty, fear and hope, this film will follow years of manipulation, investigation and the high-stakes manhunt that resulted in Freegard’s capture and saved the life of his final victim.

Directed by Declan Lawn & Adam Patterson, the film was written by Michael Bronner.

Rogue Agent hits US cinemas and AMC+ on 12th August 2022.

  1. Talking of new movies and ignoring The Gray Man watch out for and don’t miss the film Rogue Agent about the real MI6 conman Robert Freegard starring James Norton and Gemma Arterton. The film was produced by Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson. Fact is often stranger than fiction, so this real life film is intense and makes for scary watching. It makes a great change from all these fictitious grey men ruining our escapism with torturous scenes!

    Indeed, ignoring the fact based Operation Mincemeat and The Courier, there’s almost too much fictional espionage on the menu to cope with so why not try reading instead. If you liked watching or reading Deighton, Herron or Wynne productions, we suggest a noir fact based espionage masterpiece could do the trick. One compelling thriller springs to mind. It’s a down to earth curious real life Cold War novel you’ll never put down, the first stand-alone thriller in The Burlington Files.

    Anyway, if you liked Bill Fairclough’s epic spy novel Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series or The Courier, the Cumberbatch film about Greville Wynne, you should love Rogue Agent and vice versa. Just like Ben Macintyre’s The Spy and the Traitor about KGB Colonel Oleg Gordievsky, these are all “must reads or must views” for espionage cognoscenti.
