Newcomer Elliott Heffernan, Harris Dickinson, Erin Kellyman, Stephen Graham, singer-songwriter Paul Weller (his film debut) and Kathy Burke have joined the cast of Steve McQueen’s next film, “Blitz,” from Apple Original Films, reports Deadline.
Saoirse Ronan is also on board with McQueen writing, directing and producing the film, which tells the stories of Londoners during the Blitz of World War II. It is scheduled to begin filming later this year.
From Deadline: Dickinson’s star has been on the rise ever since his breakout role in FX’s limited series Trust, where he played John Paul Getty III. This summer has especially put the industry on notice when he starred in Ruben Ostlund’s “Triangle of Sadness,” which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and is already in the awards-season conversation. He was also recently seen in Sony’s adaptation of “Where the Crawdads Sing,” which brought in $77 million at domestic box office.
Best known for roles in “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Irishman,” Graham was most recently seen in Marvel’s “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and the Tom Hanks World War II pic “Greyhound.” He can be seen next in the drama “Boiling Point” and also has the Disney pic “Young Woman and the Sea.”
Kellyman can currently be seen in the Disney+ series “Willow.” Other credits include “The Green Knight” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
