The movie will be international in scale, with shooting set to start around this time next year on locations in the UK and the Middle East. A screenplay is expected to be completed till december, meaning casting won’t begin until well into the New Year.

Once director Peter Kosminsky and his producers David Aukin and Hal Vogel have read Jeremy Brock’s script they will start to get ideas about which young actor might portray Prince Harry. Mr. Kosminsky told DailyMail reporter: ‘My personal approach as a director is that I read the script, and people start to pop into my head.’

Mr. Kosminsky also told about the reason he drawn the film about the Harry because he feels “a sense of compassion for the guy”.

Mr. Kosminsky said: “His parents break up in the most spectacularly public way, his mother dies in the most tragic and, again, public way and everything is picked over. He’s a man born to no role, the heir and the spare.”

He continues: “Then Harry joins the Army and for 77 days sees action in Afghanistan – and finds, possibly for the first and only time in his life, a role. Suddenly, he finds himself alongside ordinary guys. He’s immersed, in the most acute circumstances, in the real world and absolutely finds his metier – and for the first time in his life he doesn’t feel like a spare part.”

“But then that’s snatched away and, fearing for his safety, the Army top brass send Harry home.”

DailyMail reported said that Mr.Kosminsky told about an interview of a soldier who fought in Falkland, the soldier told Mr. Kosminsky of returning home and seeing all the families waiting on the dock. But instead of wanting to join them, he longed to stay on board with his mates, the men he’d fought alongside.

Mr. Kosminsky said: “That’s a bit like Harry felt he found a sense of home amongst those soldiers and had to leave it and return to his former world. The human story is at the core of what we’re trying to do.”
