Ansel Elgort's About To Suit Up As A Top Secret '80s Spy

He's about to star in 'Code Name Veil.'

Ansel Elgort's already shown us he can do the whole duplicitous informant thing by way of "The Divergent Series" -- grrrrr, Caleb -- so the idea of him becoming a top secret spy guy for his next flick sounds like a major win.

(And not just because he'd be one schmexy secret agent man, although that is also probably true.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elgort is now attached to star in "Code Name Veil," a based-on-a-true-story style pic about a CIA rookie agent who has to learn on the job when his investigation of the U.S. Embassy bombings in Beirut in 1983 turns into a scary hostage situation involving his boss.

Which means the intensity level is going to be at full tilt for this one, and Ansel Elgort is going to get a real opportunity to prove himself in the outside of the dystopian/YA/heartthrob/EDM scene.

We have full faith that our Ansolo will slay the action-drama genre just as effectively as everything else -- whether it's giving children incredible dance lessons or posing in only an apron -- because he's a jack of all trades and a master at every single one.
