We’ve got our hands on a first official picture of Anthropoid, the upcoming WWII thriller movie directed by Sean Ellis based on a script he co-wrote with Anthony Frewin and starring Jamie Dornan (yep the chap from Fifty Shades of Grey) and Cillian Murphy:
“Based on the true story of two Czechoslovak soldiers (Jamie Dornan and and Cillian Murphy) sent to assassinate the head of the SS in 1942. SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (Detlef Bothe) was the Reich’s number three and main architect for the ‘Final Solution’.”
Jamie Dornan plays the role of Jan Kubis, and Cillian Murphy portrays Josef Gabcik.
An interview with Actor Jamie Dornan and Director Sean Ellis about the film at the 2015 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival:

Surprisingly Anthropoid isn’t the only movie about this assassination, there’s another one coming, the movie “HHhH” directed by Cedric Jimenez and starring Jack O’Connell as Jan Kubis and Jack Reynor as Jozef Gabcik.
