Malin Akerman is to star opposite Ethan Hawke in CIA thriller The Numbers Station.
The Couples Retreat actress confirmed her involvement in the Kaspar Barfoed film to TheWrap, through her publicist.
She will play a woman who Ethan, as a disgraced black ops agent, is assigned to protect, but the duo have to fight for their survival after they are attacked by unspecified enemies.
Malin - who recently completed work on thriller Catch 44 - next appears in rom-com The Romantics alongside Katie Holmes, in Josh Radnor's acclaimed indie Happythankyoumoreplease, and South African drama The Bang Bang Club.
Ethan, who was last seen in Brooklyn's Finest, is currently filming Pawel Pawlikowski's The Woman In The Fifth with fellow Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas.
