Domhnall Gleeson Joins Jolie’s “Unbroken”

Domhnall Gleeson (“About Time,” “Anna Karenina”) will star opposite Jack O’Connell in the Angelina Jolie-directed true story tale “Unbroken” at Universal Pictures.

The story is based on the best-selling Laura Hillenbrand novel and follows the Olympian-turned-POW Louis Zamperini (O’Connell), the wunderkind member of the USA track team who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Years later, he survived a harrowing plane crash in the Pacific Ocean during WWII through 47 days adrift in a life raft to becoming a POW.

Filming begins in Australia in October ahead of a Christmas Day 2014 release.
