PRAGUE: British director Sean Ellis will shoot Anthropoid, a World War II thriller in the Czech Republic later this year. The film's name is a reference to the codename of a top-secret operation by Czechoslovakia to assassinate a key Nazi occupier in Prague in 1942.

Irish star Jamie Dornan will play one of the two Czechoslovak paratroopers who killed the man who led Bohemia and Moravia in the middle of World War II - the brutal Reinhard Heydrich, known as the Butcher of Prague. Jamie Dornan will be joined in the lead by Cillian Murphy, who grew up in the Republic of Ireland. Anthropoid will be shot in the Czech Republic in July and coproduced by Kryštof Mucha, executive director of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, and director David Ondříček.
