“The idea was loosely based on a story my grandfather told me,’ Sam shared about the movie to Deadline. “The movie is dedicated to him…”

He added that George and Dean-Charles‘ characters are not him, but are in “the spirit of what he told me and the central idea of a man carrying a message wouldn’t leave me. It just clung on in there somehow, for the last 50 years.”

1917 opens on Christmas Day.
