HOLLYWOOD – The first image of Gary Oldman as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is astounding in its verisimilitude.
The new film – entitled The Darkest Hour – has begun filming and the first image of Oldman was released earlier this week. Anthony Eden who was close pals with the former war leader spoke to the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
It’s amazing. He’s not only captured the physical Winston, there’s also the glimmer in the eye. It is truly captivating. It’s like seeing my old mucker. Are you absolutely sure this isn’t just a picture of Winston Churchill?
The new film directed by Joe Wright and will also star Lily James, John Hurt and Ben Mendelsohn.
