If it’s one storyline Hollywood consistently loves to tell, it’s a World War II one. Continuing that tradition, the first trailer for “HHhH,” Cédric Jimenez‘s take on the true story of a plot to assassinate Head of the SS Reinhard Heydrich, debuted today.
The film, which is based on the novel by Laurent Binet, stars Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor and Mia Wasikowska.
The official synopsis is as follows:
1942: The Third Reich is at its peak. The Czech resistance in London decides to plan the most ambitious military operation of WWII: Anthropoid. Two young recruits in their late twenties, Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis, are sent to Prague to assassinate the most ruthless Nazi leader — Reich-protector Reinhard Heydrich, Head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the architect of the “Final Solution”.
Check out the first trailer below. The film is scheduled for an unspecified 2017 release in the U.S.
