Jamie Bell (Rocketman, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Billy Elliot) is set to star in a film adaptation of The Dynamite Room.

The film is to be directed by Olly Blackburn (Donkey Punch, and a number of TV dramas including Victoria, The Widow and the upcoming Andrew Davies adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sanditon), with the script written by E V Crowe. The film will be produced by Ivana MacKinnon of Stray Bear Productions (producer of the BAFTA-winning Beast) and Oliver Roskill of Record Player Films (producer of the BAFTA-winning Under the Shadow).

That’s all I know at the moment, but it’s pretty exciting!
