Dominic Cummings is known as the architect of Brexit. So it's then no surprise that a film would be made about his initiative to separate the U.K. from the EU. I presume the film will also have Nigel Farage, for me the face of Brexit. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Cummings in "Brexit," a co-production between HBO and UK’s Channel 4. A look at the just-released trailer and the feeling of an SNL-skit quickly sneaks up on you, not a good thing, but I'll give the film the benefit of the doubt, let's see how this turns out.
“Brexit” is directed by Toby Haynes, (“Sherlock,” “Doctor Who,” “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell,” and the “Black Mirror” episode “U.S.S. Callister”).
HBO is set to premiere the film on January 19, 2019.
