First Photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange in ‘The Fifth Estate’
There are a couple of Julian Assange movies in the works, but the one we’ve been hankering for a look at is the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring Bill Condon-movie, The Fifth Estate. Cumberbatch stars as Assange himself, with Daniel Bruhl on board as WikiLeaks co-founder Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Based on Domscheit-Berg’s ‘Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website’ and David Leigh and Luke Harding’s ‘WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy’, this could very well be the slightly heavier, more compelling sister film to David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’.
Also starring Laura Linney, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander, Carice Van Houten, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis and Peter Capaldi, ‘The Fifth Estate’ hits theaters on November 15th.
