According to ScreenDaily, Sam is attached to star in the screen adaptation of Journey’s End, a World War I classic. We look forward to hearing more about this potential new project:

“Sam Claflin is attached to star as Captain Stanhope in the screen adaptation of R.C. Sheriff’s WWI classic play Journey’s End.

Set in the trenches over four days in 1918, Journey’s End follows a group of soldiers as they prepare for an enemy attack with new recruit Raleigh joining the company commanded by 20 year old Captain Stanhope, his former childhood friend and hero, who has changed almost beyond recognition following harrowing service at the front.

The film will be produced by Guy de Beaujeu and Simon Reade (Private Peaceful), from the latter’s screenplay adaptation.

UK sales outfit Metro International will be selling the project at the AFM and is understood to be in talks with an A-list director to shoot the film in the UK next year. The anticipated project has been mooted for a number of years but faced delays due to complications surrounding rights ownership.

[…] Claflin, whose currency continues to rise, recently shot Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman sequel The Huntsman and is currently filming Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest Hour And A Half opposite Gemma Arterton”.

UPDATE – October 2016

Confirmation that Sam will begin shooting this film in Autumn 2016. We are so excited for this project – yet another exciting & challenging role for Sam!
