Netflix releases new images for original Jamie Dornan film ‘The Siege of Jadotville’
Last week we celebrated the fact that we’ll soon get to see Jamie Dornan play a sexy neurologist. This week, we’re getting spoilt to the first official images of the Fifty Shades of Grey heartthrob in his new role as a UN battalion commander, for the upcoming Netflix original film, The Siege of Jadotville.
Described as a gripping true story of incredible bravery against impossible odds, the film will depict the 1961 siege of a 150-strong Irish UN battalion under Commander Patrick Quinlan (Dornan) by 3,000 Congolese troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies.
Directed by Richie Smyth (best known for directing music videos by such bands as U2, Bon Jovi, and The Verve), and written by Kevin Brodbin (Constantine), The Siege of Jadotville also stars Emmanuelle Seigner, Jason O’Mara, Guillaume Canet, Mikael Persbrandt and Mark Strong.
An official release date is yet to be announced.
