From Variety we have the first image of Irish actors Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy in Metro Manilla director Sean Ellis’ new film Anthropoid.

The film is based on the real-life story of Operation Anthropoid, an attempted assassination of prominent Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovakian soldiers trained by British forces.

Dornan and Murphy play soldiers, with Ellis directing from a script co-written by the director and Anthony Frewin. Other actors include Toby Jones, Harry Lloyd, Bill Milner, Alena Mihulova, Sam Keeley, Charlotte Le Bon, and Anna Geislerova.

Shooting is currently underway on Anthropoid in Prague for a 2016 release.
