Benedict Cumberbatch’s WikiLeaks Movie is Coming to Theaters This Fall

Benedict Cumberbatch can do no wrong. The strangely beautiful and fiercely talent Englishman first made us fall into love with him in the BBC version of Sherlock last year, and in the coming months we’ll see his villainous turn in Star Trek. But it’s DreamWorks that’s currently prepping their WikiLeaks movie with Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon leading the picture. Now titled The Fifth Estate the film is currently in production with Cumberbatch starring as Julian Assange and Daniel Bruhl as WikiLeaks co-founder Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The Fifth Estate, based on the books Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website and WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy with a script from Josh Singer of The West Wing, looks to be shaping up to Sorkin-esque proportions.

With shooting still underway, DreamWorks has already set a release date for the project—a cozy November 15th premiere, hitting the prime award season sweet spot. The cast will be rounded out with the great Peter Capaldi and the stately Dan Stevens, as well as Anthony Mackie, Alicia Vikander, and Laura Linney. With a cast like this, it’s difficult to go wrong—but again, it’s difficult to judge how this will all pan out from the man who brought us the final saga of Bella and Edward. At least we get a bleach-blonde Benedict, right?
