Joe Cole as Harry Palmer in the Ipcress File on Sundance Now and AMC+

The 2022 remake of The Ipcress File, based on Len Deighton’s best-selling novel (affiliate link), premieres May 19 on Sundance Now and AMC+.  The stylish spy thriller, which seems like the kind of film that Austin Powers was spoofing, stars Joe Cole and Lucy Boynton. Cole’s character, Harry Palmer, trades a jail sentence for an assignment with British Intelligence tracking down a kidnapped nuclear scientist in 1962 Berlin. It seems he’s in over his head. Lucy Boynton plays Harry’s handler.
