Washington D.C. [USA], May 16 (ANI): Benedict Cumberbatch is all set to portray the role of the leading strategist of the Brexit campaign in a new Channel 4 drama.

The 'Sherlock' actor will star as Dominic Cummings, the strategist who was the campaign director of the 'Vote Leave' campaign.

"Unpacking the anatomy of the historic, high-stakes campaign to win the hearts and minds of the British people, this one-off drama set primarily during the referendum will, for the first time, explore the myriad tactics employed to swing one of the most surprising referendum results in living memory," Channel 4 said, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The drama will be directed by Toby Haynes and written by playwright James Graham.

The film will go on floors later this year. (ANI)
