Sean Bean set for war hero role

Sean Bean is to star in new World War II action drama Age Of Heroes.

The Sharpe star will appear alongside Danny Dyer and Rosie Fellner in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Co-written by Vitoria and Ed Scates, the drama - the first in a planned trilogy - is based on the true story of the formation of Ian Fleming's 30 Commando unit, a precursor for the elite forces in the UK.

The film, which will be directed by Adrian Vitoria, is due to begin shooting on location in Norway early next month.

Danny revealed earlier this week he is attending an army training camp in Scotland to get into shape for the role.

The two films that follow will be titled Age Of Honor and Age Of Glory.
