Page became a globally known star thanks to Netflix’s Bridgerton, where he played heartthrob Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. He opted not to return for season two, and the actor has since moved on to a big screen career, starring in Paramount’s Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves and signing on to star in a reboot of The Saint for the studio. He also appeared in the Russo Bros. action movie The Gray Man for Netflix.

Black Bag will reunite Soderberg with Blanchett, who starred in his 2006 movie The Good German and 2018’s Oceans 8. It also marks a reunion with Fassender, who starred in the filmmaker’s 2011 feature Haywire. Its producers include Casey Silver and Greg Jacobs.

Page is repped by CAA, The Artists Partnership and Johnson Shapiro. Deadline first reported the news.
