Ahmed was among a group of young actors who had been meeting with Edwards for the last month in London while the director prepped for the film. Sources say Ahmed’s chemistry test with Jones separated him from the pack for Edwards and production execs.

With the movie being about soldiers, I imagine we will see a lot of parts being cast very soon as the movie begins shooting this Summer.
Thanks to @GavinBooth for the heads up!
Sam Claflin is also heavily rumored right now to be in the film.
