Paul Bettany has joined Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in The Tourist.
The romantic thriller has been shooting on location in Venice for several weeks now, but Variety reports The Da Vinci Code star and The Holiday's Rufus Sewell have both been added to the cast.
The Tourist - written by Gosford Park's Julian Fellowes, Christopher McQuarrie and Jeffrey Nachmanoff and directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck - centres on an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart, who is caught up in a whirlwind of intrigue and danger when he pursues a romance with a woman who deliberately crosses his path.
It has not been revealed what supporting roles Bettany and Sewell will play, but the two British thespians are known to make excellent villains.
The Tourist is von Donnersmarck's first movie since he won the foreign-language film Oscar for The Lives Of Others in 2006.
