Babe star James Cromwell's new thriller has been banned in Russia because of it's controversial depiction of a Kgb agent.

A Lonely Place for Dying, which co-stars Hitchcock actor Michael Wincott, will not hit cinemas of streaming film websites in the former Soviet Union, according to MovieHole.net.

The award-winning Cold War thriller, set in the 1970s, pits a Kgb mole against a Cia agent.

Director Justin Eugene Evans has been given no reason for the Russian ban, but can only assume it's because of the movie's controversial nature.

A spokesman for the film says, "Justin's visa to Russia has been knocked back and they're not offering any reason why. But clearly they're threatened by the film and nobody wants to touch it there."

Evans says, "All of the characters are fictional. I personally think the film has more in common with Three Days of the Condor than some hard-hitting Cold War political expose. I'm just a storyteller and this is a story that happens to have a Russian audience. I don't understand the reason.

"This film is about a time and place in history that no longer exists. I don't see why anyone in the Russian Federation would be offended by our observations of the Soviet Union and the Kgb."

The film will be released in America via iTunes next month (Feb13).
