Benedict Cumberbatch to play Vote Leave supremo in Channel 4 Brexit drama

Benedict Cumberbatch to play Vote Leave supremo in Channel 4 Brexit drama

Benedict Cumberbatch is to play the man who masterminded the Vote Leave campaign during the Brexit referendum in a new Channel 4 docudrama.

The actor will play Vote Leave's campaign director Dominic Cummings.

The two-hour drama, which has a working title of Brexit, has been written by political dramatist James Graham.

Channel 4 said it would "explore the myriad tactics employed to swing one of the most surprising referendum results in living memory".

Vote Leave was the official "out" campaign during the 2016 EU referendum and was backed by cabinet ministers including Boris Johnson and Michael Gove.
