Fifty Shades actor Jamie Dornan will be returning to the big screen with a new character in 2018 but admitted to his good friend Ronan Keating that we won’t be seeing him in a lycra superhero outfit just yet.
Speaking on Ronan’s Magic Radio Breakfast Show he did his best to keep details on the new movie secret despite getting a grilling.
Dornan revealed, “I’m about to jump into something at the end of November but it’s not official yet so I don’t think I’m allowed to talk about that.”
Intrigued by his secrecy, Ronan probed for as much information as he could get out of the actor.
“It’s not a Marvel film or a DC Comic film, it’s a million miles away from that and I’m definitely not going to be the next James Bond, but it’s something I’m very excited about.”
The Boyzone star spoke to Dornan after completing their first day of a celebrity-professional golfing competition, in which they are both participating, to chat about his upcoming film projects and his performance on the course.
The actor did open up about his upcoming film ‘My Dinner with Herve’ on HBO, which he stars in alongside Games of Thrones star Peter Dinklage and Harriet Walter.
“About six weeks ago I finished a movie for HBO called My Dinner with Herve – amazing cast of people. That’s gonna come out on HBO in March I think and then it’ll get a cinematic release in the UK and Ireland, so I’m pleased with that.”
The third and final instalment of the Fifty Shades trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed, in which Dornan plays billionaire Christian Grey, is due to be released in cinemas in February.
Jamie surprised himself with how well he played, telling Ronan: “You’ve seen me hit some shockers over the last couple of years here and I have to say today something clicked and I felt really good. I felt like a golfer for about 15 holes!”
As the interview came to a close, Ronan discovered Jamie is a fan of his Breakfast Show on Magic Radio when he asked what his favourite Magic song was.
“I’m such a fan of Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong. You know I was listening to it the other day and you played it on your show. I was driving through the Cotswolds, my wife and I, and you played that and I was singing along.”
