A new project for Jamie has been announced today! He will be a lead in H-Block by director Jim Sheridan. In this movie, Jamie will play alongside Pierce Brosnan, and once again with his friend Cillian Murphy! Here’s more information on the plot and Jamie’s role:
The film will be based on the true story of the Maze Prison Escape in 1983, when 38 members of the IRA escaped from the most feared prison in Northern Ireland. Only 19 were recaptured. In the escape, one officer died and 20 were injured including being stabbed or shot. The escape was a violent breakout that included hostage taking and ended up being the biggest in both British and Irish history.
Cillian Murphy will play the ringleader of the escapees, “Fifty Shades Of Grey” lead Jamie Dornan as the planner, and Pierce Brosnan as the antagonist, the prison warden.
Dornan will play a violent prisoner who starts discovering weaknesses in the prison and is one of the last to agree to escape and when he does he leaves with a vengeance on the way out.
No information on the filming start and locations at the moment. The film will be seeking financing at Cannes.
