Remember when Netflix was just a streaming entertainment platform? The company has quickly grown into an entertainment giant, with awards to its credit and big-budget productions that stir up a tremendous amount of buzz. Now, the company has revealed details for its next big original film, and it sounds like we’re in store for an exciting show.

Netflix has officially announced a new thriller called Jadotville, which will star Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) and Guillaume Canet (Tell No One). The company acquired the project during the 2015 Berlin Film Festival, and it will go into production in April.

“The story of how Pat Quinlan led his troops against an overwhelming force without losing a single man is one of the great stories of the 20th century, and we are proud to be working with such a talented and committed team to bring it to life,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a press release. “This film will be an amazing addition to our global original films initiative.”

Here’s how Netflix describes the film:

A gripping true story of incredible bravery against impossible odds, the film thrillingly depicts the 1961 siege of a 150-strong Irish UN battalion under Commander Patrick Quinlan (Dornan) by 3,000 Congolese troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies. Canet plays a French commander who sought to defeat Quinlan and his men.

Jadotville will be directed by Richie Smyth and it’s slated to premiere on Netflix in 2016.
