British actors Tom Hiddleston, Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong will star in the 60 spot, which is to be directed by The King's Speech director Tom Hooper; Sexy Beast star Kingsley appears in the teaser seen here. The creative agency is Spark 44. The auto brand is also launching a website, britishvillains.com, to accompany the campaign, which promotes its F-Type Coupe. Other content will inculde be a "Good to be bad" blog, produced by Gawker Media, social content hashtagged #goodtobebad and ads that will wrap F train subway cars.
