Sean Bean Joins The Age Of Heroes
The true story of Ian Fleming’s WW2 unit

26 March 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Sean Bean, Danny Dyer and Rosie Fellner have all signed on for World War Two Drama Age Of Heroes.

What separates this from your usual army film is that it’ll follow the real-life adventures of the 30 Commando unit, the ancestor of today’s elite forces that featured James Bond creator Ian Fleming among its ranks.

Adrian Vitoria co-wrote the script with Ed Scates, and plans to start directing the action drama next month in Norway.

If all goes well and the movie is a success, it’ll kick off a trilogy with two further outings – Age Of Honour and Age Of Glory – planned for the future.

Missed opportunity
This film had an exciting premise as Flemming was a bit of a hero back in the day, but the film has now been ruined as I've just discovered that Danny Dyer is in it. By definition it is doomed to failure!!! More
