Already Seen 'Fifty Shades'? Well, Even More Jamie Dornan Is Coming Soon
Jamie Dornan is going from "Fifty Shades of Grey" to leading a 150-member Irish U.N. battalion -- and he'll be streaming straight into your eyeballs via Netflix.
Dornan already stars in the BBC series "The Fall," available via Netflix, and it seems the company wants to keep him all to themselves, as they've acquired all rights to his upcoming film, "Jadotville."
The war drama, helmed by U2 music video director Richie Smyth and written by "Constantine" scribe Kevin Brodbin, chronicles the real-life 1961 Siege of Jadotville in Central Africa; Dornan will play Irish Commander Patrick Quinlan.
“The story of how Pat Quinlan led his troops against an overwhelming force without losing a single man is one of the great stories of the 20th century, and we are proud to be working with such a talented and committed team to bring it to life,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos told Variety.
The film will begin shooting in Ireland and South Africa this April, and is slated to release sometime in 2016.
