The Fault In Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort has signed up to star in a CIA drama Code Name Veil as an agent who investigates attacks against the US Embassy and Marine garrison during the 1983 Beirut bombings.

The film, based on a true story, will be written by Matt Billingsly and directed by Michael Cuesta; the latter previously directed Kill The Messenger, another CIA-related film starring Jeremy Renner. If you've got any qualms about how Ansel will perform as a secret agent, just watch The Divergent series for a hint.
