Cillian Murphy takes starring role in Christopher Nolan's war drama Dunkirk
Cillian Murphy is to star in Christopher Nolan's new war epic Dunkirk.
Nolan's next movie will be the story of the 1940 WWII Dunkirk evacuation project, the British military operation that saved some 330,000 Allied soldiers when they were surrounded by the German army in the small French town of Dunkirk.
According to The Wrap, Murphy, who has previously worked with Nolan on The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception, will take a lead role in the new movie, starring alongside Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branagh.
Also confirmed for the movie are '71's Jack Lowden and War & Peace's Aneurin Barnard, while newcomer Fionn Whitehead and One Director singer Harry Styles will also have key roles.
Dunkirk is due for release on July 21st in 2017, which is one week before Tom Holland will make his first solo bow as Spider-Man and the same day Pitch Perfect 3 hits cinemas.
The new movie is Nolan's follow-up to Interstellar, which was released in November of 2014 and which grossed almost $700 million at the box office. It is available to purchase in our online store by clicking on the buy button on the right-hand side of the page.
