Cillian Murphy Reunites with Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk

story-dunkirk-cmurphy

You might know Cillian Murphy as the talented Irish actor from In the Heart of the Sea, Peaky Blinders, or Red Eye. Or you might know him as the man with a sack over his head in Christopher Nolan films like Inception, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Batman Begins. TheWrap is reporting that Christopher Nolan has selected Cillian Murphy for his ever-growing ensemble cast enlisted for Dunkirk. Murphy joins Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh — all of whom will likely outrank newcomers Finn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard, and Harry Styles. Dunkirk is set to start filming in the next few months. What are the chances Murphy ends up with something obstructing his face from camera in Dunkirk?

Deadline is reporting a rumor that One Direction singer Harry Styles has been offered a role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. In addition, they’re reporting that British actors Jack Lowden and Aneurin Barnard are in talks for major roles in the film as well. While Harry Styles is not believed to be a leading role, Lowden is up for one of the two leading roles, the other being Fionn Whitehead as we discussed yesterday. Aneurin Barnard is said to have a significant role, though the exact nature of the roles are shrouded in secrecy – to no one’s surprise.

story-dunkirk-whitehead

TheWrap is reporting that Christopher Nolan has begun to select the leads for his upcoming film Dunkirk by casting newcomer Fionn Whitehead in one of the two main roles. Insiders state Nolan has been testing young actors for weeks, many of whom remain largely unknown, as we initially reported back in December. Whitehead has a limited history on camera, with his only role being in the three-part horror-drama Him on ITV, but is a part of the National Youth Theatre in the UK. Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, and recent Academy Award winner Mark Rylance are still set to fill out the rest of the ensemble cast.
