Coulby and Hawes will also appear alongside Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones), Adam Roebuck (Mrs Biggs) and Liz Smith (The Royle Family), according to the Radio Times.

Spooks writer Ben Richards has adapted The Bridge for UK television - while the original series focused on a joint murder investigation led by Danish and Swedish police, The Tunnel will focus on relations between the UK and France.

The Tunnel will enter production later this month and will air on Sky Atlantic in late 2013.

Us cable network FX is also developing its own remake of The Bridge starring Diane Kruger, Demián Bichir and Matthew Lillard. »
