Kevin Spacey Will Play Winston Churchill In Upcoming Biopic

Kevin Spacey has recently been confirmed to play the infamous former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill

Kevin Spacey has had a long career playing strong, powerful men and so it’s no surprise at all to see him confirmed to play Winston Churchill in an upcoming biopic about his rise to power and battles against Hitler, titled Captain Of The Gate.

Spacey has very recent experience playing a politician, albeit a fairly corrupt and unscrupulous one, as Frank Underwood in the Netflix hit, House Of Cards. It will be also be interesting to see another huge American actor playing a recognisable figure in British politics after Meryl Streep’s attempt at playing Margaret Thatcher in 2011’s The Iron Lady wasn’t such an overwhelming success. Although Streep was acclaimed, the film as a whole received mixed reviews and so whoever directs will need to ensure that the rest of the film will be up to scratch.

Spacey has only really been in a spattering of films in the last decade due to taking over the Old Vic as Artistic Director in 2003 and so this will see a welcome return to form. At the other end of the spectrum, he is also returning to star in Horrible Bosses 2 which hits the UK in November of this year.
