Jeremy Irvine to Star in The Railway Man

Jeremy Irvine, star of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming drama War Horse, has been cast in The Railway Man, a drama to be directed by Jonathan Teplitzky.
The project is based on a memoir by Eric Lomax that chronicles his experience working on Japan’s Death Railway during World War II and the woman he loved. Japan forced prisoners of war to work on the railway, which connects Bangkok to what is now Yangon, Myanmar.
Lomax was a British officer during the war, and was tortured by the Japanese for being a spy. Later in life, Lomax sought to track down one of his torturers. He will also be portrayed by Colin Firth in the film.
