Harry Lloyd cast in "Closer to the Moon" 2013
Deadline Magazine released the exclusive news on August 31st that Harry had been cast in the lead role in the period drama Closer to the Moon. He will be starring alongside the likes of Vera Farmiga and Mark Strong. The film, set in Bucharest 1959, follows a group of anti-Nazi revolutionaries as they rob a bank under the pretense of shooting a film. They are subsequently arrested and sentenced to death but not before being forced to reenact the robbery for a propaganda film.
It sounds like quite an interesting storyline however, naturally I wont be deciding on whether or not I will watch this film until further plot and rating information is known, so at present I am just reporting this information rather than promoting it (if you understand what I mean). Anyway with the film set for release in 2013 we still have a while to wait.
Thankfully for all us Harry fans out there we still have much to look forward to in the nearer future with many countries still awaiting the DVD release of Jane Eyre (in which he plays Richard Mason) and his upcoming roles in The Iron Lady (as the young Denis Thatcher) and BBC One's Great Expectations (as Herbert Pocket).
