#FIRSTLOOK: “WIKILEAKS” DRAMA “THE FIFTH ESTATE” BEGINS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Following the success of their Best Picture Contender Lincoln, Disney now sets its sights on the intriguing The Fifth Estate – not to be confused with the popular CBC Series of the same name. The Film directed by the amazing Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), just began principal photography and the above Still was released today.
The Fifth Estate traces the beginnings of controversial and game-changing Website WikiLeaks, which made its Founders famous and also re-directed the flow by which Media receive their information. Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, War Horse) plays Julian Assange and Daniel Brühl (The Bourne Ultimatum, Inglourious Basterds) plays Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten also star.
Disney‘s Touchstone Pictures will be releasing the Drama on November 15, 2013. The Film is co-financed by DreamWorks Studios and Participant Media.
