Ben Kingsley Stars in ‘Intrigo: Death of an Author’

The three-part anthology series Intrigo, based on Swedish writer Hakan Nesser’s thriller novels, will be released next year, starting with the first movie Intrigo: Death of an Author which stars Ben Kingsley and will arrive in select theaters and On Demand on January 17 from Lionsgate.

After an author named David plots the seemingly accidental murder of his wife, her body is never recovered, and he’s convinced that she’s still alive. Meanwhile, as David translates the final novel by a writer who also died mysteriously, he finds himself attracted to the man’s sultry widow. Fact or fiction, life or death… in this tale, nothing is certain.

Starring Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List), Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians, Captain Marvel), Andrew Buchan (All the Money in the World), and Jeff Fahey (“Lost,” “Justified”).
