The Gattaca actor wore a denim jacket, blue jeans, and slip-on shoes. His facial hair has been long lately for a role in The Northman.

They seemed to be in a rush and did not hold hands or show any affection.

Christian Mercuri’s Capstone Group will launch sales at the virtual American Film Market this week with filming on the project set to begin in Italy next month.
Ferrara said: ‘Zeros and Ones is a film of lockdown and war, danger and espionage, American soldiers, Chinese middlemen, Mid Eastern holy men, provocateurs, diplomats, rogue elements of the CIA and KGB.
‘I cannot wait to roll the cameras next week in a way that is safe because this film was written during and with an understanding of the pandemic.’
Mercuri added: ‘Buyers are hungry for compelling and original storylines in the hands of master filmmakers and Zeros And Ones ticks all the right boxes.
‘Coupled with world-class production values and locations that includes the eerie backdrop of present-day Rome which has a feeling of Paris at the end of WW2, this film is a package not to be missed.’
