CAPE TOWN — The sexy leading man from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, Jamie Dornan, has landed in South Africa.

The Hollywood hunk is currently in the country to film a new Netflix movie.

Jadotville is described as a war thriller set to be released on the Internet television network in 2016.

The film tells the true story of the 1961 siege of a 150-member Irish UN battalion under Commander Patrick Quinlan (Dornan) by 3 000 Congolese troops, led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies, Variety reported.

An insider revealed to Channel24 that filming was due to start yesterday.

Parts of the movie will also be filmed in Ireland. Jadotville was developed in association with the Irish Film Board and will be an official Irish/South African co-production.
