Here’s a first official look at Actor Brian Cox as the British wartime prime minister Winston Churchill in the movie Churchill, the upcoming thriller movie directed by Jonathan Teplitzky based on a script by Alex von Tunzelmann:
“A ticking clock thriller set against the 24 hours before D-Day. A bruising portrait that delves into the dark side of one of Britian’s most celebrated leaders, Winston Churchill.
May 23rd, 1944: as tensions mount in the 48-hours preceding D-Day, the now-beleaguered Prime Minister Winston Churchill (portrayed by Brian Cox), must prepare a final attempt to crush Hitler’s encroaching army. With the entire War effort ultimately hinging on this decision, the stakes have never been higher. As the Wartime leader clashes with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his inner-demons in order to navigate the Allies to victory.”
And here’s an earlier teaser poster:
Without victory there is no survival.
Besides Brian Cox, the cast also includes Miranda Richardson (as Clementine, Churchill’s wife), John Slattery, James Purefoy, and Ella Purnell.
The film has yet to get an official release date.
