Meanwhile, Benedict Cumberbatch is now hard at work on his next project. The actor, who’ll be seen as John Harrison in Star Trek Into Darkness, has begun shooting The Fifth Estate, with Cumberbatch playing the controversial figure Julian Assange. Check out the photo, and, here’s the synopsis straight from Dreamworks: “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 Fifth Estate will open on November 15.
