Jack Lowden And Aneurin Barnard In Talks For Major Roles In Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’

EXCLUSIVE– British actors Jack Lowden and Aneurin Barnard are in talks for major roles in Christopher Nolan’s World War 2 action adventure Dunkirk. Lowden is believed to be up for one of the two leading roles in the pic with newcomer Fionn Whitehead up for the other lead role, while Barnard’s part is also believed to be significant. Details of the exact nature of the roles are being closely guarded as is often the way with a Christopher Nolan project. What we do know is the project will deal with the World War II evacuation of Dunkirk which took place from May-June 1940.

Jack Lowden is one of the most exciting young actors in the UK right now. He has won plaudits for his performance in BBC-Weinstein Co co-production War and Peace. He also plays iconic left-wing politician Tony Benn in Amma Asante’s much-buzzed about A United Kingdom, starring Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo. He also stars opposite Rachel Weisz, Andrew Scott and Timothy Spall in Mick Jackson’s Denial. He is repped by Conway van Gelder Grant and UTA.

Aneurin Barnard impressed with his portrayal of King Richard in the BBC-Starz mini series The White Queen. He is repped by The Artists Partnership.

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that principal photography on the epic action thriller “Dunkirk” is underway in Dunkirk, France. Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) is directing “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The production will shoot in France, Holland, the UK and Los Angeles.

“Dunkirk” opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

“Dunkirk” features a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy (“The Revenant,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Inception”), Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” “Wolf Hall”), Kenneth Branagh (“My Week with Marilyn,” “Hamlet,” “Henry V”) and Cillian Murphy (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), as well as newcomer Fionn Whitehead. The ensemble cast also includes Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan and Tom Glynn-Carney.

The film is being produced by Nolan and Emma Thomas (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy). Jake Myers (“The Revenant,” “Interstellar,” “Jack Reacher”) is serving as executive producer.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema (“Interstellar,” “Spectre,” “The Fighter”), production designer Nathan Crowley (“Interstellar,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), editor Lee Smith (“The Dark Knight” Trilogy, “Elysium”), costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (“Inception,” “Bullets Over Broadway”), and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson (“Mad Max: Fury Road”).

Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing “Dunkirk” worldwide and has slated the film for a July 21, 2017 release.
