Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment has boarded as a financier and producer on Sean Ellis’ Anthropoid, starring Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) and Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders). Also joining the previously announced cast is Charlotte Le Bon (Yves Saint Laurent).
Ellis (Metro Manila) also co-wrote the script Anthony Frewin (Colour Me Kubrick: A True…ish Story). Principal photography will commence on 13 July 2015 in Prague. The film tells the story of how the Allied forces carried out missions during World War II to assassinate Nazi SS-General Reinhard Heydrich. Nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”, Heydrich had enjoyed a meteoric rise through the SS ranks and was at the time second only to Himmler and Hitler in the Third Reich’s hierarchy. Trained by British forces, two soldiers from Czechoslovakia’s army-in-exile were to be parachuted into their homeland with a daring assignment: to assassinate the man many saw as Hitler’s natural successor.
Anthropoid is produced by Mickey Liddell (The Grey) and Pete Shilaimon (In Secret) for LD Entertainment, Leonard Glowinski (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) for 22H22, Anita Overland (Rush) and Chris Curling (Hannibal Rising), and executive produced by Jennifer Monroe (Disconnect). Krystof Mucha and David Ondricek of Lucky Man Films are co-producers for the Czech Republic. ICM Partners packaged the film and will be handling the North American sale with UTA. Altitude Film Sales is managing international sales.
Sean Ellis is represented by ICM Partners and Independent Talent Group; Jamie Dornan is represented by UTA and United Artists; Cillian Murphy is represented by CAA, Lou Coulson Associates and Lisa Richards Agency; Charlotte Le Bon is represented by UTA and Agence Adequat.
