What happens when you put the best minds at the game from five rival teams into one collective? Do they invade the system or tear each other apart? Such is the intense thrill of the espionage joyride that 'The 355' promises to be. Add to the mix a dream team of Hollywood's finest female stars coming together in a hard-driving original approach to the globetrotting espionage genre and you're set.

Release date

'The 355' premieres in theaters next year on January 15, 2021.


The official synopsis of the movie states: "When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason 'Mace' Brown will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie, former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah, and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng, who is tracking their every move. As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world — or get them killed."

Jessica Chastain plays the role of Mace, with Diane Krueger joining the cast as Marie. The slew of Academy Award favorites is completed by Lupita N'yongo as Khadijah and Penelope Cruz as Graciela. Fan Bingbing plays the shrewd antagonist Lin Mi. The film also stars Sebastian Stan ('Avengers: Endgame') and Edgar Ramírez ('The Girl on the Train'.)



'The 355' is being directed by Simon Kinberg, the writer-director-producer of 'Dark Phoenix', producer of 'Deadpool' and 'The Martian', and writer-producer of the X-Men franchise. The script comes from Theresa Rebeck (NBC’s 'Smash') and Kinberg, with Chastain and Kelly Carmichael Kinberg co-producing. Bohemian Rhapsody's Richard Hewitt will executive produce.
