The story is set during the legendary evacuation of the northern French city during WWII. Nolan and his casting department recently began testing teenagers in London for lead roles, but the director also wanted to nail down some choices for the few adult roles in the film before the holiday.

[Tom Hardy is rumored to be up for one of these lead roles.]

Heart Baby!

When he is offered an opportunity at freedom in exchange for fighting for Team USA in the 1984 Olympic Games, he shocks everyone by saying no.

Shelton has been friends with [the] former convict for many years and followed him after he was imprisoned in the early 1980s for multiple armed robberies. Martin was given a compassionate release in the 1990s.

He is now working to set up his own boxing gym to get youth off the street and working towards a dream in his community. Shelton and the team behind Heart, Baby! set up a webpage to try to help him achieve that goal.
