Director John Wells talks about Jamie and confirms that he has been cut from 'Burnt'
“In making every film, cuts and adjustments in storylines inevitably occur. In the case of Burnt, Jamie’s role was a small cameo that he was kind enough to do for us and was part of Sienna Miller’s character’s backstory,” Burnt director John Wells said in a statment to EW. “We ultimately decided to focus on Adam Jones’ redemption story.”
Bradley Cooper tackles the starring role of Adam Jones, a one-time chef prodigy who got his start in Paris at age 16. After a huge professional failure, Adam heads to London for a second chance. Sienna Miller plays Cooper’s love interest, who presumably had a past with Dornan’s character.
“I was thrilled to have Jamie,” Wells continued. “His performance was fantastic.”
Next up for Dornan is a war thrille,r Anthropoid, and Netflix film, Jadotville, next year, along with reprising his role in BBC’s The Fall, which returns in 2016.
