In between sessions smouldering as Ross Poldark, Aidan Turner finds time for a film career. He's landed a shared main role on an intriguing new movie, which goes by the title The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot.

Writer/director Robert D. Kryzkowski has come up with this one, which will initially set during World War II. American soldier Calvin Barr (Turner) leaves the woman he loves behind to sneak behind enemy lines and take out Adolph Hitler as the conflict rages. And then we cut to the same man decades later, now played by Sam Elliott. War veteran Barr is called upon to hunt down the legendary Bigfoot, which has been spreading a deadly plague in the Canadian wilderness. Yeah, that old story...

Kryzkowski has John Sayles on board as producer and will utilising a top notch effects team including Blade Runner and 2001 veteran Douglas Trumbull, and the team behind the creatures of Hellboy and Stranger Things. He's preparing to shoot the movie starting this August in the States.

Turner is back on small screens in Poldark now and will also be seen in Loving Vincent, in UK cinemas on 13 October.
