Los Angeles.

Northern Irishman Jamie Dornan (39), currently convincing in Kenneth Branagh’s drama ‘Belfast’, has landed a major role in Hollywood.

He will appear alongside ‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot (36) in the planned spy thriller ‘Heart of Stone’, streaming service Netflix announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Gadot is said to pursue villains as a James Bond-style spy or ‘Mission: Impossible’ agent Ethan Hunt, as reported last year.

Start of filming not yet known

“Let’s mix it up and have fun,” Gadot told her colleagues on Instagram. I can’t wait to embark on this journey. The beginning of the filming of the agent film is not yet known. The screenplay was written by Greg Rucka (“The Old Guard”) and Allison Schroeder (“Hidden Figures”). Briton Tom Harper (“The Aeronauts”, “Wild Rose”) is on board as director.

Dornan, best known for the “Shades of Grey” series, is currently gaining critical acclaim for his role as a father in director Kenneth Branagh’s black-and-white drama “Belfast.” He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globe Awards in January. (dpa)
