Actor Jamie Dornan has been spotted on the set of Jadotville, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Richie Smyth from a script by Kevin Brodbin based on the book by Declan Power:
“Set in 1961, during the Congo crisis, Jadotville follows Irish general Pat Quinlan (portrayed by Jamie Dornan) and his 150 troops, whom Hammarskjold (Mikael Persbrandt) and the UN had sent to protect the city after Katanga’s breakaway. For six days and nights, they were attacked by 3,000 Congolese government soldiers who were supported by French and Belgian mercenaries hired by the mining companies.”
And here’s a picture from the editing room:
Besides Jamie Dornan, the cast also inlcudes Mark Strong, Jason O’Mara, Mikael Persbrandt, Guillaume Canet, Michael McElhatton, and Amy Louise Wilson.
The film has yet yet to get an official release date.
