Jamie, Matthew to star in BBC's 'Death and Nightingales'

'Fifty Shades of Grey' star Jamie Dornan and 'The Americans' star Matthew Rhys are all set to star in BBC's 'Death and Nightingales'.

To be adapted and directed by Allan Cubitt, the three-part drama is based on Eugene McCabe's 1992 novel. It will see Dornan reunite with the 'Fall' creator, Allan Cubitt, confirmed Hollywood Reporter.

The novel 'Death and Nightingales' is a story of love, betrayal, deception, and revenge, set in the beautiful haunting countryside of Northern Ireland in 1885. It's a place where neighbours observe each other and inform, a world of spies, confessions, and double-dealing, where a pervading sense of beauty is shot through with menace and impending doom.

Commissioned by Patrick Holland, 'Death and Nightingales' is supported by Northern Ireland Screen, and Red Arrow Studios International will distribute worldwide.

Filming for the same will begin this summer in Northern Ireland.
