Jamie Dornan is to star opposite Cillian Murphy in a new World War II thriller called Anthropoid, which tells the story of the mission to kill SS head Reinhard Heydrich, known as "The Butcher of Prague".

ScreenDaily.com, which broke the news of the duo's casting, says that Sean Ellis (Metro Manila) will direct the film, which takes its title from the Allied code-name for the assassination mission. Two soldiers from Czechoslovakia's army-in-exile returned to Prague to carry out the mission.

Director Ellis said: "I feel incredibly proud to bring the story of Anthropoid to the big screen."
-
He continued: "I have been fascinated by the story for the last 14 years and find it immensely humbling to explore the bravery of the men and women of the Czech resistance who sacrificed themselves for the freedom of their country while dealing a blow into the heart of Nazi Germany.
-
"In the Czech Republic, it is a story of great national pride and it's time to tell the world that story."
