After warming fans’ hearts as Pa in the awards season contender “Belfast,” Jamie Dornan has signed on to join Gal Gadot in the international spy thriller “Heart of Stone,” from Netflix and Skydance.
Directed by Tom Harper from a script by Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder, plot details surrounding the story are being kept under wraps.
Dornan’s involvement in the high-profile project comes amid a wave of acclaim for the actor, who has nabbed Critics Choice and Golden Globe nominations for his turn in “Belfast,” written and directed by Kenneth Branagh about his experiences growing up in Northern Ireland (where Dornan is also from). The actor is also nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award alongside the film’s talented ensemble cast, which boasts Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jude Hill, Ciarán Hinds and Colin Morgan.
Dornan, who recently participated in Variety‘s Actors on Actors series with his “Marie Antoinette” co-star Kirsten Dunst, also stars in “The Tourist” series, which premieres March 3 on HBO Max. The actor’s recent resume includes “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” “The Fall” and “A Private War.” He is repped by UTA.
“Heart of Stone” is produced by Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger, along with Mockingbird’s Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn and Pilot Wave’s Gadot and Jaron Varsano. Patty Whitcher serves as an executive producer, alongside Harper and Rucka.
Netflix nabbed worldwide rights to the project last January, marking another partnership between the streamer and Skydance, after teaming for “The Old Guard” with Charlize Theron, Ryan Reynolds’ “6 Underground” and the upcoming “The Adam Project” starring Reynolds and directed by Shawn Levy. Gadot and Netflix have their own strong partnership, with the superstar set to appear in two sequels to “Red Notice,” which has become the streamer’s most-watched movie of all time.
Deadline was first to report news of Dornan’s involvement in the project.
