Worlds collide: Variety has reported today (October 2) that Game of Thrones‘ Robb Stark (a.k.a. the King in the North) and soon-to-be Prince Charming, Richard Madden, is joining Luther star Idris Elba in action-charged thriller film Bastille Day.

Also starring Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color), the film follows a rogue CIA agent and an American con artist on an anti-terrorist mission in Paris.

No official word as of yet on which character Madden will play, but it seems that both he and Elba will be donning American accents for their respective roles. It wouldn’t be the first time for either of them—Elba famously took on a Yankee accent in The Wire, while Madden tackles one for television mini-series Klondike.

You can watch Madden discuss learning to speak with an American accent in the video below, courtesy of Access Hollywood.
