Just days after the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer became the most watched trailer of all time, its S&M-loving lead Christian Grey, otherwise known as Irish actor Jamie Dornan, is already adding another notch on his cinematic bedpost.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Dornan will star in Parallel Films’ upcoming geopolitical action thriller The Siege of Jadotville from writer Kevin Brodbin and first-time director Richie Smyth.

The film recounts the 1961 siege of 150 Irish U.N. troops in the Congo, now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo, after pro-Western warlord Moise Tshombe took control of the Katanga region, killing the democratically elected Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lamumba. Belfast-born Dornan will play Commandant Pat Quinlan, the Irishman who led the U.N. battalion against a force of 3,000 local troops fighting alongside French and Belgian mercenaries.

The film, which has been developed with the Irish Film Board and will be an official Ireland-South Africa co-production, is set to shoot in spring 2015 in Ireland and South Africa after Dornan finishes promoting Fifty Shades of Grey.
