Poster: Pike, Clarke, O’Connell In “HHhH”

The Cannes Film Festival announces its line-up next week with many cinephiles predicting what movies will join the Croisette. One that might get on there is Cedric Jimenez’s “HHhH” – also known as “The Man With The Iron Heart”.

Jason Clark, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor, Mia Wasikowska and Stephen Graham star in the WWII film which is set in 1942 and deals with Operation Anthropoid – two young recruits to the Czech resistance in London are sent to Prague on a mission to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich – the Head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the architect of the ‘Final Solution’.

Yes, it’s the same plot as the Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan-led “Anthropoid” which released last year. FilmNation will release “HHhH” in France on June 7th. The Weinstein Company has the U.S. rights but hasn’t set the date.
