    Benedict Cumberbatch undergoes balding transformation to play Vote Leave campaign manager

    Benedict Cumberbatch has switched up his look to play Vote Leave campaign manager Dominic Cummings for a new TV one-off drama. The Channel 4 TV movie, which currently has the working title Brexit, will focus on the data-driven political campaign during the EU referendum, including the "myriad tactics employed to swing one of the most surprising referendum results in living memory". Filming has begun on what's been promised to be an "explosive and illuminating" Brexit thriller, directed by Toby Haynes, who's worked on the likes of Sherlock, Black Mirror, and Doctor Who.

    From Brexit, to Donald Trump, to the actors, musicians, and other famous talent we lost this year, they’ve skillfully shot and edited a rather tense and compelling film trailer to sum up the past 12 months, with the tagline, “It’s the horror movie of the year”. ‘2016: The Movie’ has only had its fake trailer uploaded to YouTube for a few days but already it’s gone viral with just under half-a-million views so far.
