Jamie Dornan cast in first film role since Fifty Shades of Grey

The Northern Irish star of The Fall will appear in Adam Jones alongside Bradley Cooper, Emma Thompson, Lily James and Sienna Miller

Since first finding acclaim in The Fall, Jamie Dornan’s star has rocketed thanks to his role in the racy adaptation of EL James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. 


Now he’s signed up for his first appearance post-Christian Grey in Bradley Cooper’s new film Adam Jones – previously titled Chef but renamed to avoid confusion with Jon Favreau’s recent indie hit. 

While details of Dornan’s involvement are being kept firmly under wraps, we do know he’ll be sharing a set with some acting royalty in the form of Emma Thompson, in a flick that sees Cooper play a hot-shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after a stint away from the kitchen. 

The Weinstein Company movie will also feature Downton Abbey star Lily James, Sienna Miller, Rush star Daniel Bruhl and Alicia Vikander, according to The Daily Mail.


Directed by John Wells (August: Osage County), Adam Jones was written by Peaky Blinders scribe Steven Knight and will be filmed in and around London.
