Fingers crossed, Jamie gets to keep the beard...

The movie, which is based on a true story, will premiere online in 2016, and Jamie will play Commander Patrick Quinlan, who leads a 150-strong Irish UN battalion in a 1961 siege.

Guillaume will star as a French commander, who tries to defeat them.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has shared his excitement ahead of the film, stating: “The story of how Pat Quinlan led his troops against an overwhelming force without losing a single man is one of the great stories of the 20th century, and we are proud to be working with such a talented and committed team to bring it to life.

“This film will be an amazing addition to our global original films initiative.”

Guillaume's previous credits include 'The Beach' and 'Tell No One'

Jamie’s current movie ‘Fifty Shades’ broke records during its debut weekend, and if all goes well, the cast could be reuniting for a second film.

One person who won’t be seeing the flick is Jamie’s wife Amelia, who has no plans to take a trip to the cinema anytime soon.

“She doesn't want to watch this. She wants to support me and my work,” he explained last week. “I am not going to put any pressure on her either way. It's her decision.

“She's well aware that it's pretend, but it's probably not that comfortable to watch.”
