O’Connell, Pike, Clarke & More Join “HHhH”

The Weinstein Company is set to acquire U.S. rights to the Nazi-era thriller “HHhH” which Cedric Jimenez (“The Connection”) is directing and which just began production in Budapest.

Based on Laurent Binet’s bestselling historical novel, the story revolves around the true story of two exiled operatives who escaped Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and successfuly assassinated key Hitler cabinet member Reinhard ‘The Butcher Of Prague’ Heydrich.

The duo changed the course of history, but in doing so met brutal deaths in the basement of a Prague church. Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor and Mia Wasikowska are attached to star.

David Farr, Audrey Diwan and Jimenez wrote the screenplay.
