Per Fly is the director of political thriller Backstabbing for Beginners and he picked up two solid actors to star.

Variety reported that both Ben Kingsley and Josh Hutcherson with star in the film that starts shooting this January.

Hutcherson plays a man who landed his dream job as the U.N.’s Oil for Food Program. He is thrown into a post Iraq war mess as countries are fighting for the oil reserves. Kingsley will play his boss and the one person he can trust, or can he?

Kingsley’s character may be part of a conspiracy that Hutcherson has to uncover. It is a risky job that might cost him his life, his superior’s career, and the Kurdish woman he falls in love with.

Deadline reports that Fortune International will start pre-sale tickets at the American Film Market next week. Kingsley and Hutcherson are also serving as executive producers. Kingsley is currently in theaters in Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk while Disney’s The Jungle Book and Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups are set to be released soon. Hutcherson will next be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 in November.
