As BWW Movies World previously reported, principal photography has begun on the WikiLeaks drama "The Fifth Estate." The first image from the film has just been released - check out Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange and Daniel Brühl as Daniel Domscheit-Berg, below!
"The Fifth Estate" will open in U.S. theaters on November 15, 2013 and be distributed domestically by Disney's Touchstone label. Distribution internationally will be split among Disney, Dreamworks partner Reliance, and deals made through the studio's partnership with Mister Smith Entertainment.
Following Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Brühl), an early supporter and eventual colleague of Julian Assange (Cumberbatch), "The Fifth Estate" traces the heady, early days of WikiLeaks, culminating in the release of a series of controversial and history changing information leaks. The website's overnight success brought instant fame to its principal architects and transformed the flow of information to news media and the world at large.
The film also stars Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten.
