Irish Actors: Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy join Sean Ellis’ Anthropoid

Screen Daily is reporting that Irish actors Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy have signed on to star in Metro Manilla director Sean Ellis’ new film Anthropoid.

The film is based on the real-life story of Operation Anthropoid, an attempted assassination of prominent Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovakian soldiers trained by British forces.

Dornan and Murphy will play soldiers, with Ellis directing from a script co-written by the director and Anthony Frewin.

Shooting is expected to get underway in Prague in July, so expect to see Anthropoid mid/late 2016.
