‘FIFTY Shades of Grey’ star Jamie Dornan has revealed his next on-screen role is “as different as you can get” from the erotic film.
The 32-year-old star – who recently appeared alongside Dakota Johnson in the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed film – has been cast in a movie about the Siege of Jadotville, which is based on real-life events during the civil war in the Belgian Congo.
Jamie – who’s set to play an officer leading a United Nations (UN) Irish army unit that went to the country in 1961 – said: “It’s not Christian Grey in uniform.”
The plot centres on how an outnumbered Irish unit, led by Dornan’s character, faced 3,000 troops who were loyal to the prime minister. Jamie told the Daily Mail newspaper: “There was unrest and the officer and his men were fighting French and Belgian mercenaries.
“The UN wouldn’t send more ammunition and the film’s about how these men coped. It’s as different as you can get from Fifty Shades.” BANG!
