Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan Set for WWII Thriller ANTHROPOID

Irish stars will take on the Nazis…

Corkonian Cillian Murphy (‘Interstellar,’ ‘Peaky Blinders’) and Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan (‘Fifty Shades of Grey’) have been tapped to co-star in the WWII thriller ‘Anthropoid,’ reports Screen Daily.

With Sean Ellis (‘Metro Manila,’ ‘Cashback’) directing from a script he co-wrote with Anthony Frewin, the film tells the true story of two Czech soldiers (trained by British forces) sent to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the SS in 1941 who was seen as Hitler’s natural successor.

Production is scheduled to commence in July in Prague with Leonard Glowinski, Anita Overland and Chris Curling producing.
