Steven Knight, who wrote the original film, will also pen the sequel.

Eastern Promises 2's plot is thought to centre on Nikolai (Mortensen) attempting to bring down crime boss Kirill (Cassel) on behalf of Russia's federal security service.

The project will begin filming after Mortensen completes work on the big-screen adaptation of The Two Faces of January next year.

Mortensen was first linked to an Eastern Promises sequel in 2010.

Eastern Promises made $56m at the global box office in 2007 and earned Mortensen a 'Best Actor' Oscar nomination.
