Stephen Graham lands next movie role
Line of Duty star Stephen Graham has landed his next movie role in Blitz, an upcoming wartime drama from 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen.
Graham will be joined by Little Women actress Saoirse Ronan and See How They Run's Harris Dickinson. Also in the cast are Erin Kellyman (Willow), Kathy Burke (Absolutely Fabulous), singer Paul Weller and newcomer Elliott Heffernan (via Deadline).
The film, which is set to begin production later this month, will follow the lives of Londoners during the blitz of the Second World War – a German aerial bombing campaign against Britain which resulted in blackouts and the evacuation of children to the countryside.
McQueen will serve as writer, director and producer on the project, which comes from Apple Original Films.
In other news, it was recently announced that Graham will reprise the role of Andy in a BBC TV adaptation of his critically-acclaimed film Boiling Point, which will take place six months on from where the movie concluded.
Vinette Robinson and Hannah Walters will return as Carly and Emily for the series, while Philip Barantini will be back to direct the first two episodes.
Graham and Walters said in a joint statement: "The incredible reaction to the film, its story and specifically the characters along with the huge desire to know more and delve deeper into their worlds has led us to create a drama series with the BBC in which we will keep the audience gripped, intrigued and involved in each of the characters’ journeys.
"Although we have hung up our feature-length one-shot boots, our audiences can still be excited by extraordinarily lengthy shots and camera techniques that will complement the pure naturalism that was the essence and soul of the film."
Boiling Point is available to watch on Netflix UK.
