Jacob will star in the series as Dorrigo Evans, “an army surgeon whose short but forbidden affair with Amy, the young wife of his uncle, sustains and haunts him through his darkest days as the reluctant leader of men held prisoner in a Thai-Burmese camp during WWII.”

“It is great for Shaun [Grant] and I to be collaborating with a talented actor like Jacob. ‘The Narrow Road to the Deep North’ needs a powerful leading presence, and it feels like this young actor and this extraordinary book have met each other at the right time,” director and executive producer Justin Kurzel said in a statement.

“It is thrilling to have Jacob Elordi join us on this project,” Curio Pictures’ managing director and executive producer Jo Porter added. “The character of Dorrigo Evans requires a multi-layered actor who can bring strength, sensitivity and charisma to the role – qualities Jacob has in spades. Together with the creative powerhouses of Justin Kurzel and Shaun Grant, there couldn’t be a more exciting team to bring this important novel to life.”

Filming will take place in Australia.

Jacob has recently been seen filming as Elvis Presley for the upcoming movie Priscilla, based on Priscilla Presley‘s memoir “Elvis and Me.”
