A forthcoming drama by Dominic Cooke called ‘Ironbark’ will feature Georgian actor Merab Ninidze along with other world-renowned cinema stars, including Academy Award-nominated Benedict Cumberbatch, Golden Globe winner Rachel Brosnahan and BAFTA nominee Jessie Buckley.

The plot of the film is based on the story of British spy Greville Wynne, played by Cumberbatch, and his work during the Cold War, particularly during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The film is in post-production and the part of Merab Ninidze plays in it has yet to be revealed.

Ninidze is a famous Georgian actor who has gone beyond the limits of his motherland and strongly established himself in the arena of world cinematography. His most memorable characters were seen in the following works: ‘Repentance’, ‘Roots’, ‘My Happy Family’, ‘Hostages’, ‘Nowhere in Africa’ and ‘Paper Soldier’. He is also known for his roles in the British-American TV series ‘McMafia’ and the drama ‘Jupiter’s Moon’ by Kornél Mundruczó.

‘Nowhere in Africa’, where Ninidze played the role of Walter Redlich, won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2002.

Set for release this year, ‘Ironbark’ is Ninidze's latest work.
