Watch trailer for ‘Grantchester’ star James Norton’s new 1930s movie ‘Mr Jones’

A trailer has been released for new period drama thriller Mr Jones.

The movie stars War & Peace actor James Norton, who departed Grantchester earlier this year.

He plays Gareth Jones, a Welsh investigative journalist who travels deep into the Soviet Union to uncover an international conspiracy and try to get an interview with Stalin in 1933.

Based on the true life-or-death journey that inspired George Orwell to write Animal Farm, Mr Jones is directed by Agnieszka Holland (House of Cards, The Secret Garden).

Watch the trailer:


Mr Jones will premiere at the London Film Festival on 6th October, ahead of a wider UK release in early 2020.

The cast also includes Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) as British journalist Ada Brooks, alongside Peter Sarsgaard (The Killing) and Fenella Woolgar (Call the Midwife).

The fourth season of Grantchester is available on DVD on Amazon.
