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.
