The film based on the controversial rise of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange began principle photography yesterday in London. The Fifth Estate will chart the early beginnings of the whistle-blowing website and is based on the fact-based novels Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website by Daniel Domscheit-Berg, an early supporter and eventual colleague of Assange as well as WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy, by Luke Harding and David Leigh.
Domscheit-Berg will be played by Inglorious Basterds’ Daniel Bruhl with British thespian Benedict Cumberbatch as the infamous online Australian activist. Here we have the first official still of the divisive figures.
The Fifth Estate will co-star Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, Alicia Vikander, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Carice van Houten, and is directed by Bill Condon. The official press release below gives all the details.
