Jamie Dornan and Sam Claflin have joined Brian Kirk’s action thriller Borderland.
Set in 1970’s London, Borderland is a high-octane character-driven thriller, in the vein of Michael Mann’s Heat. After his wife is accidentally shot dead in Ireland, a member of the IRA takes over an Active Service Unit in the English Capital. Their mission is to cause chaos and destruction while his mission is to hunt down his wife’s killer – an SAS captain (Sam Claflin) who is also hunting him.
Principal photography will begin in the summer in Dublin and London.
Dornan starred in the Fifty Shades trilogy for Universal Pictures which has earned $1.145b in the worldwide box-office. This year, he will appear in Robin Hood: Origins, as Will Scarlet and in My Dinner with Herve, alongside Peter Dinklage for HBO.
Claflin has recently starred in My Cousin Rachel, Me Before You, Their Finest and Journey’s End. He recently completed work on Jennifer Kent’s psychological thriller The Nightingale and will next be seen in Baltasar Kormákur’s drama Adrift, starring alongside Shailene Woodley.
