Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson Take On New Film Projects!

While the onscreen couple continues to grace fans with their presence in Poldark Season 3, Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson have found time to widen their career. Turner, who is not new in the film industry, has landed a major shared role in the intriguing new movie. His leading lady Tomlinson, on the other hand, has been slated to star in the three-part BBC One series.

The 34-year-old hunk has been slated to star in The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot. Writer-director Robert D. Krzykowski had come up with this film, which tells the story of American soldier Calvin Barr (Turner), who leaves his true love to sneak behind enemy lines and kill Adolph Hitler as the conflict rages. Decades later, war veteran Barr (now played by Sam Elliot) is needed to hunt down the legendary Bigfoot – a carrier of a deadly plague in the Canadian wilderness.

The filming is expected to start this August in the United States. While Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson are back on the small screens, fans will surely be rewarded with some new projects from the stars.

BBC Confirmed Tomlinson as a Cast in Ordeal By Innocence

Meanwhile, BBC had announced an all-star cast for its latest book adaptation. The actors included in the list are Poldark’s Eleanor Tomlinson, Harry Potter star Anthony Boyle, Bill Nighy, and more. Screenwriter Sarah Phelps will adapt Christie’s 1958 novel, Ordeal By Innocence, which is expected to air this December.

It is not the first time the network had pulled renowned actors for one of its Agatha Christie adaptations. Last year, Kim Cattrall starred as Emily French in Witness for the Prosecution. Turner also played a role in BBC adaptation, And Then There Were None.

The three-part series is under Mammoth Screen, the same production company behind the critically-acclaimed Poldark and Victoria. Executive producer Damien Timmer quipped, “Sara Phelps has excelled herself with this spellbinding adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most celebrated stories. A glorious dark deconstruction of an apparently perfect family, we hope it delights and chills viewers when it airs!”

Hence, everyone should wait for the official release date of the pair’s new projects. Fans can catch the onscreen couple in Poldark Season 3 every Sunday on BBC One at 9 PM.
