Los Angeles - Jamie Dornan has been cast in Jadotville.

The war thriller will be broadcast on Nextflix and will see the Fifty Shades of Grey star appear alongside Guillaume Canet, with production set to begin in April 2015.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said: "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.

Check out the trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey:

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

Producer Alan Moloney said the movie marks another important landmark for Netflix.

He said: "As filmmakers, we are constantly looking for new ways to bring a movie to the largest possible audience.

Netflix has already reinvented the TV market and is now moving front and center into the film business. We are proud and excited to be part of their story and innovation."

The announcement comes shortly after Netflix agreed a four-film deal with Hollywood star Adam Sandler, all of which will debut exclusively on the streaming service.
