Harry Styles, after a month of filming in France, is most likely heading out into the harbor near Weymouth for dramatic sea battle scenes in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Nolan is sparing no expense in the production. While filming began last month, there could still be time for interested extras to participate in this major motion picture with Harry. The movie is scheduled for release on July 21, 2017, according to Blackmore Vale Magazine.
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk will feature authentic World War II-era ships and planes in some cases rather than replicas. There are rumors that Christopher actually paid $5 million for a nearly priceless Nazi WWII-era Luftwaffe aircraft for the movie. He has been said to be equipping that plane with IMAX cameras in order to film an epic sea battle, according to the Telegraph. Could this nearly 80-year-old-plane actually fly in the upcoming movie?
Harry Styles, of One Direction, will co-star with Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, and Kenneth Branagh as well as newcomer Fionn Whitehead. The official press release, quoted in the Telegraph, explains how the film is progressing.
“Principal photography on the epic action thriller Dunkirk is underway in Dunkirk, France. Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) is directing Dunkirk from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The production will shoot in France, Holland, the UK, and Los Angeles.”
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk will be a major film production in every sense of the word. Plans to use the Weymouth harbor may have been leaked, according to Blackmore Vale Magazine. It seems that Weymouth & Portland Borough Council is holding a series of meetings with an unnamed movie company requesting to shoot a major film in the harbor. Coincidentally, an open casting call for extras was held on Saturday at the Weymouth Pavilion. It was mentioned that the movie was an “untitled” WWII project.
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk will start filming in Weymouth and Swanage next month, according to Unreality TV, who spoke with 2020 Casting representative Arron Cuthbertson. Unreality TV reports that 2020 Casting is looking for men and women of all ages who can appear to be from the 1940 era. Men will need special World War II-style haircuts to try out as extras.
Harry Styles has apparently earned a bit of shore leave after his great work in France. Harry has been seen this week in London hanging out with friends. Styles even posed for selfies with a crowd of fans.
