Anthropoid   /   Films   /   News

Bleecker Street has set World War II drama “Anthropoid,” starring Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy, for an Aug. 12 release in the U.S.

The distributor made the announcement on Friday, the 74th anniversary of the mission “Operation Anthropoid” on May 27, 1942.

Bleecker Street acquired U.S. rights to the drama two weeks ago from LD Entertainment during the Cannes Film Festival. The movie is based on “Operation Anthropoid,” the code name for the Czech operatives’ mission to assassinate SS officer Reinhard Heydrich.

Heydrich, the main architect behind Adolf Hitler’s Final Solution, was the Reich’s third in command behind Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. He was also the leader of Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia.

The film follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabčík (Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December of 1941. They must find a way to assassinate Heydrich, with limited intelligence and little equipment in a city under lockdown.

“Anthropoid” will open the Karlovy Vary Film Festival on July 1.

The third and final season of BBC Two’s hit psychological thriller The Fall has just begun shooting in Belfast. Starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, the final five-episode run of the drama created by Allan Cubitt will air later this year. Netflix has U.S. rights.

The story picks up immediately from the cliffhanger Season 2 finale as the battle between Detective Superintendent Gibson (Anderson) and serial killer Paul Spector (Dornan) heads towards a “terrifying conclusion” in which the rules of their deadly cat-and-mouse game are set to shift again.

New cast members inlcude Krister Henriksson (Wallander), Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Aisling Bea (Trollied) and Richard Coyle (Crossbones).

Colin Morgan will also feature as Detective Sergeant Tom Anderson, with series regulars John Lynch, Valene Kane, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh, and Aisling Franciosi also returning.

Cubitt says, “I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years with Stella Gibson and Paul Spector… and I’m thrilled to have recently started filming the third installment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death. Gillian and Jamie have lived and breathed those characters during that time and I’ve been incredibly well-served as both writer and director by their stellar performances. Obviously I don’t want to give anything away about how the third series will end but I can say that I am looking forward to working with both Gillian and Jamie again in the near future!”

Jamie Dornan broke out as a movie star earlier this year thanks to his starring role in Fifty Shades of Grey, and was expected to appear on the big screen again next month in Burnt. However, Dornan’s part in the film — about a chef’s second attempt at making it in the restaurant business — has been removed, EW has confirmed.

“In making every film, cuts and adjustments in storylines inevitably occur. In the case of Burnt, Jamie’s role was a small cameo that he was kind enough to do for us and was part of Sienna Miller’s character’s backstory,” Burnt director John Wells said in a statment to EW. “We ultimately decided to focus on Adam Jones’ redemption story.”

Bradley Cooper tackles the starring role of Adam Jones, a one-time chef prodigy who got his start in Paris at age 16. After a huge professional failure, Adam heads to London for a second chance. Sienna Miller plays Cooper’s love interest, who presumably had a past with Dornan’s character.

“I was thrilled to have Jamie,” Wells continued. “His performance was fantastic.”

Next up for Dornan is a war thrille,r Anthropoid, and Netflix film, Jadotville, next year, along with reprising his role in BBC’s The Fall, which returns in 2016.
