Anthropoid sounds like the title of the sci-fi movie, but it’s actually something a little more serious and historic that that, as it’s about a real-life mission to kill a Nazi leader. The movie has just started shooting, with Toby Jones, Harry Lloyd, Bill Milner, Alena Mihulovájoin, Jamie Dornan, Cillian Murphy, Anna Geislerová and Charlotte Le Bon starring.
The first pic has now arrived, featuring Jamie and Cillian.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In 1941 Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazi forces, governed by SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”, Heydrich had a meteoric rise through the SS ranks and was now second only to Himmler and Hitler in the Third Reich’s hierarchy. His unparalleled brutality and reign of terror on the Czech resistance movement led Allied authorities in London to hatch a top-secret mission that would change history.
‘Trained by British forces, two soldiers from Czechoslovakia’s army-in-exile were to be parachuted into their homeland with a daring assignment: to assassinate the man many saw as Hitler’s natural successor. ANTHROPOID tells the incredible story of this remarkable operation and the fate of these unsung heroes of WWII.’
