Apple Original Films is gearing up to release its highly-anticipated spy thriller, Argylle, in theaters on February 2, 2024. Directed by the visionary Matthew Vaughn, known for his work on the Kingsman franchise and Kick-Ass, Argylle promises to be a cinematic experience that bends reality and keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.
A “Tail” of Fiction Meets Reality
Bryce Dallas Howard, celebrated for her roles in the Jurassic World franchise, stars as Elly Conway, a reclusive author renowned for her best-selling espionage novels. Elly, who cherishes quiet nights with her computer and beloved cat, Alfie, finds her world turned upside down when her fictional tales begin to eerily reflect real-world covert operations. As the lines between fiction and reality blur, Elly, with Alfie in tow, is thrust into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse.
Joining her on this whirlwind adventure is Aiden, portrayed by Oscar® winner Sam Rockwell. A spy with a peculiar allergy to cats, Aiden teams up with Elly as they navigate a world where fiction and reality intertwine.
Argylle boasts an impressive ensemble cast, including Henry Cavill (The Witcher), John Cena (Fast X), Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), pop sensation Dua Lipa (Barbie), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), comedy legend Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and the iconic Samuel L. Jackson. Adding a touch of real-life charm, Alfie the cat is played by Chip, the pet of supermodel Claudia Vaughn.
Behind the scenes, the film is helmed by Matthew Vaughn, with a screenplay crafted by Jason Fuchs, known for his work on Wonder Woman. The production team includes Matthew Vaughn, Adam Bohling, Jason Fuchs, and David Reid, all of whom have left their mark on the Kingsman franchise. The executive production team comprises Adam Fishbach, Zygi Kamasa, Carlos Peres, and Claudia Vaughn.
Presented by Apple Original Films in collaboration with MARV, Argylle is a production of Cloudy and will be distributed by Universal Pictures. This fantasy spy thriller is set to be a cinematic masterpiece, blending a gripping narrative with a star-studded cast.

The greater the spy, the bigger the lie.
From the twisted mind of Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman franchise, Kick-Ass) comes Argylle, a razor-witted, reality-bending, globe-encircling spy thriller.
Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World franchise) is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the plots of Elly’s fictional books—which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate—begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past.
