    The cast for Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ has been announced.

    The legendary director has picked relative unknown Jeremy Irvine to play lead character Albert in the novel adaptation, with his parents played by ‘Trainspotting’ star Peter Mullan and ‘Miss Potter’ actress Emily Watson, Empire online has revealed.

    Other talent lined up for roles in the film include Davie Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch and ‘This is England’ star Stephen Graham.

    ‘War Horse’ – a novel written by Michael Morpurgo – has been adapted by ‘Billy Elliot’ writer Michael Morpurgo for the big screen.
