To celebrate the release of The Man with the Iron Heart on Blu-ray and DVD, we have an exclusive featurette taking us behind the scenes on the making of the film with cast members Rosamund Pike, Jason Clarke and Jack O’Connell sharing their thoughts on their latest project.
The latest offering from director Cédric Jimenez (The Connection) is based on the bestselling novel HHhH from Laurent Binet and tells the story of how the brave men and women of the Resistance sacrificed everything in the name of freedom.
Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) takes on the title character, the steely-eyed and unflinching Reinhard Heydrich, also known as ‘the blond beast’ and behind some of the worst atrocities of the war; Rosamund Pike (Oscar-nominated for Gone Girl) stars as Heydrich’s wife Lina; and Stephen Graham (Al Capone in Boardwalk Empire) is the diabolical SS general Heinrich Himmler. Making up the rest of the cast as the resistance fighters are Jack O’Connell (Starred Up, ‘71), Jack Reynor (Free Fire) and Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre).
The Man with the Iron Heart is released on Blu-ray and DVD January 8th.
The Man with the Iron Heart Official Synopsis
Prague, 1942. The Third Reich is at its zenith, controlling most of Europe. Reinhard Heydrich, dubbed “the man with the iron heart” by Hitler, has risen to the top of the Nazi Party as head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the seemingly unstoppable architect of the ‘Final Solution’. However, a small group of Czech Resistance fighters are about to attempt the impossible – a veritable suicide mission to assassinate this embodiment of evil.
