The 19-year-old Brit (whose Irish first name is pronounced “Finn”) joins elite ranks as the lead actor in a Christopher Nolan joint, headlining the acclaimed filmmaker’s upcoming ensemble war, Dunkirk. At this point Whitehead doesn’t have clearance to say anything about his character, Tommy. “It’s a suspense thriller,” Whitehead told Yahoo Movies.
The singer-turned-actor is starring in a huge multi-million dollar Christopher Nolan blockbuster alongside acting heavyweights Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, and Cillian Murphy, and now we can see what he’ll look like in the finished film. Styles looks to be playing an army grunt in Nolan’s upcoming World War 2 thriller ‘Dunkirk’, and he famously chopped off his flowing locks for the role in the film that will tell the story of the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940. Nolan, whose previous films have included ‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Inception’, and ‘Interstellar’, cast Styles earlier this year but we’ll have to wait until July 2017 when ‘Dunkirk’ is released to see whether his acting is as good as his singing.
It’s being claimed that Christopher Nolan’s new war movie, ‘Dunkirk’, may be planning a shocking stunt. IndieRevolver reports that the studio behind the movie, Warner Bros, has signed off the purchase of a genuine World War II plane, at a cost of $5 million (£3.4 million). The movie will tell the story of Operation Dynamo, also known as 'the miracle of Dunkirk’, the rescue of 330,000 Allied troops who had become surrounded by the German army in May, 1940.
