Jamie Dornan’s next flick The Siege of Jadotville is NOTHING like Fifty Shades of Grey. In fact, we’d nearly go as far to say that there’s not one bit of sex in it. Instead, it is “a taut geo-political action thriller which centres around the siege of 150 UN Irish troops led by Commandant Pat Quinlan in the Congo in 1961”, according to the official synopsis. And it's going to be filmed in Ireland and South Africa.
Dornan will be playing Commandant Pat Quinlan, “the Irish man who led the UN battalion”, and he’s very excited about it:
“I can't wait to get stuck into Jadotville. It's an unbelievable story and Commandant Pat Quinlan is going to be a treat of a character to tackle. I'm a big fan of both Richie Smyth and Alan Moloney and I'm very much looking forward to working with them both.”
Hmm, sounds gritty. Will you give it a watch?
