The Peyton Manning of 2017 is returning to the big screen for a Dunkirk sequel, according to Deadline.
The film is currently filming in France, and it’s currently set for a 2019 release.
It’s a good bet that this time around the actors will have a different chemistry than last time around, as Dunkirk will be the first time they’re sharing the same director.
The project is expected to be an ambitious undertaking for the actors, who have been working on the movie for more than a year.
Manning’s return to the Dunkirk franchise is one of the most anticipated films of the year.
While the franchise is well-known for its action, Dunkirk is set in the 1940s, and its story focuses on an American crew that has to cross the English Channel in order to reach the German coast.
The Dunkirk movie has been in development since 2012, but the project has been pushed back for some time.
This time around there will be a new crew in the mix, as Tom Hardy will play Captain James Kirk.
The actor is one half of the British action duo the Hardyts, who starred in the 2012 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.
He’s also the man who starred as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Disney/Pixar film Captain Underpants.
Also starring in the film is Anthony Hopkins as German admiral Heinrich Himmler, as well as Benicio Del Toro as Nazi SS Lieutenant Ernst Ritter.
The Hardyts also wrote and directed the film.
For the first Dunkirk installment, the movie will be released in 2019.
The cast and crew will also return for a sequel to 2017’s Dunkirk.
