Dornan and Murphy to star in WWII thriller
Jamie Dornan (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) and Cillian Murphy have signed on to star in Anthropoid, a WWII thriller that Sean Ellis is directing.
Based on the true story of two Czech soldiers who parachuted into their homeland — where ruthless SS general Reinhard Heydrich had earned himself the nickname “The Butcher of Prague” — with the daring assignment to assassinate him. The assignment was code-named Anthropoid.
Ellis has co-written the screenplay with Anthony Frewin.
Filming is scheduled to start this July in Prague.
