Dreamworks Begins Shooting Wikileaks Film Today, “The Fifth Estate”

The Fifth Estate

Dreamworks announced that shooting began today on their Wikileaks movie entitled “The Fifth Estate.” The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange and Daniel Brühl as Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The cast also includes Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, and David Thewlis. Bill Condon, fresh off the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Series, will direct.

The studio also released a still from the shoot, and I have to say, Benedict Cumberbatch looks about as much like Julian Assange as I do.
