"Incredibly, incredibly saddened to hear the wonderful director Guy Hamilton has gone to the great cutting room in the sky. 2016 is horrid," Moore wrote on Twitter.

Hamilton worked with Michael Caine on Battle of Britain and Harrison Ford on the 1978 adaptation of Force 10 from Navarone. »

Gary Oldman Circling The Role Of Winston Churchill In Darkest Hour

15 April 2016 4:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At first, it seems difficult to envision any actor in the role of Sir Winston Churchill – let alone Gary Oldman. The former U.K Prime Minister was once bestowed with the nickname ‘The British Bulldog’, and that hardly seems to fit with the presence of the actor who delivered the roles of Commissioner Gordon (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Sirius Black (the Harry Potter franchise), Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg (The Fifth Element), Dracula (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK), and Sid Vicious (Sid And Nancy). But, this collection of performances shows nothing if not an incredibly vast range, and what we have with Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, is some epic drama, and electrifying speeches.

Sir Winston Churchill has been long regarded, and publicly named, as the Greatest Briton of all time – and with good reason. The economic and foreign policies he spearheaded throughout his career were undoubtedly often problematic, »
