No, the film covers events at the bridge until it was relieved and also the fighting in the village of Benouville next door.

Which actors are playing the lead roles of Major John Howard and Colonel Pine-Coffin?

Keep following us on our Social Media channels. As soon as these roles are cast you will see information about it there.

Can I be an extra in the film?

There are no 'extras' as such in this film and we will not be going to any extras agencies. There are a number of re-enactor groups involved in the film already and they will be providing the bulk of the background artists for the film, the remainder will be played by actors. A number of both of these will have ex-military experience.

How can I audition for a speaking part, are you having any open castings?

There are no further castings until the summer of 2016. All Castings go through the film's Casting Director, Sharon Sorrentino. Do NOT contact Sharon via Social Media. If you wish to submit for a casting you will need to do so via your agent. Be aware that almost all of the roles are for male actors aged between 18 to 28. There are no open castings for female roles at all. You will see some people be cast in the film before this time, but these will be people who already have a track record of working with the film's director.

I am a re-enactor with my own costume and kit, I would love to be in the film – can you use me?

All of our Re-enactors go through our Re-enactors Co-ordinator, however if you're under the age of 45 and have a uniform for any of the following: 7TH Para Battalion June 1944, Ox and Bucks Glider Infantry June 1944, 716th German Infantry Division or Panzer Grenadiers of the 21st Panzer Division, please send us an EMAIL, with an attached photograph and also state your availability (ie free during the week, weekends only, or you can do both, given notice). If you have vehicles from the time period. There will be a facebook group for all living history members involved in film at some point.

Are you still taking on any crew at the moment?

Most of the Heads of Departments for the film are already in place, including The Composer, Visual FX Supervisor, Production Designer, Director of Photography, Stunt Co-Ordinator, Make-Up and so on. However if you would like to get involved in one of these departments please feel free to contact us via EMAIL stating what you would like to offer and how you could help. Please attach a CV and photograph if relevant.

I have ex-military experience, do you need a military advisor?

Thanks for the offer, but we already have people on board from the various regiments that fought in the battle as well as our historical advisors both on and off the set, to cover these positions.

Are you inserting any fictional storylines into the film, like romance or adding characters who weren't actually there?

No. Our film will be very similar to historical epics like 'A Bridge Too Far' but we won't even be using an amalgamated characters – Every character in our film is based on a real person. Even those who don't have any lines.

Are you going to be filming in France?

Yes, we are going to be filming both in France and the UK. We believe very strongly to make the film look and feel authentic especially in terms of the environments where the scenes were set.

I would just like to help and be involved in the film in some small way – what can I do?

We are certainly not beyond accepting offers of help towards the production in anyway. The more money we can save on key areas like accommodation, catering, production office space, photocopying, printing, stationary, generator hire, transport, location hire, the more we can spend it on things we want to see on the screen. There are several things we are still searching for at the moment and we don't know what you can offer. By all means write to us if you have a special service you would like to offer to the film either for an extremely good rate or if it's something you can donate, please let us know.

Will you be using a lot of CGI in your film or practical effects?

The best CGI in a film is that which you do not notice. We will be using a variety of effects combined to achieve certain things in the film.

I own a spitfire and I can fly it – Do you need one for your film?

Okay so this isn't really a frequently asked question, we do have a sense of humour at the Pegasus Production Office - Yes we certainly do need a spitfire for one scene and it would be a shame to have to do it with CGI, so if you're from the aviation world or know someone who is who can get hold of one, we do need one, for a single days filming.

Can I share your posts from facebook and show them to my friends?

Yes! Yes! Yes! We need you to be our media army – Our numbers are growing but we want to hit 10,000 likes by the time we get to Christmas and 50,000 by the time we get to day one of principal photography.
