British actor Sir Michael Caine will star in the new Petr Jákl film Medieval, a biopic on the 15th century Czech warrior Jan Žižka.

Caine (The Dark Knight) will play the right-hand advisor of Czech King Wenceslaus IV alongside American actor Ben Foster (Hell or High Water) who will play the titular character.

Directed by Czech director Petr Jákl (Ghoul), Medieval will focus on Žižka’s role as military tactician in the early 1400s, and will begin filming in Prague and around the Czech Republic later this month.
