Christopher Nolan And Cillian Murphy Reteam For WWII Film, 'Dunkirk'

Christopher Nolan's upcoming WWII film, Dunkirk, will mostly be led by unknown actors, removing some celebrity from the true battlefield story. But he's got a handful of bigger names in supporting roles, and while a Nolan regular like Tom Hardy is part of the cast, the director is turning to another old favorite, Cillian Murphy.

Murphy, who has worked with Nolan on all three Batman movies and Inception, has joined Hardy, Mark Rylance, and Kenneth Branagh as part of Dunkirk's supporting cast. Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard, One Direction's Harry Styles will star in the film about the "Miracle of Dunkirk" in which hundreds of thousands of trapped British Expeditionary Force and Allied soldiers were evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940.

Dunkirk opens July 21st 2017, and don't be surprised if Nolan calls on a few more familiar faces to be part of it. [TheWrap]
