Sean Bean joins ‘Age of Heroes’

War film also stars Danny Dyer, Rosie Fellner

LONDON — Sean Bean has joined the cast of WWII action film “Age of Heroes,” which also stars Danny Dyer and Rosie Fellner.

The pic is co-written by Ed Scates and Adrian Vitoria, and is helmed by Adrian Vitoria.

ContentFilm Intl. has acquired worldwide rights, excluding the U.K. and Scandinavia.

Pic is an all-action tale based on the true story of James Bond scribe Ian Fleming’s time with 30 Commando, a special forces unit.

The film will be shot in Norway and the U.K. with principal photography starting on April 6.

“Age of Heroes” is the first in a trilogy of war films — alongside “Age of Honor” and “Age of Glory” — that are first out the gate from Lex Lutzus’ Neon Park, in collaboration with Nick O’Hagan’s Giant Films and Cinedome.

Metrodome is set to distribute in the U.K. as well as being co-producers on the film. Prime Focus handles post-production.

U.K.-based Matador Pictures lead the financing alongside private equity investors. Norway’s National Film Institute and local fund Film Kraft is also supporting the project through the film’s Norwegian producing partners, Moskus Films.
