Dev Patel Set As Lead In 'The Personal History Of David Copperfield'”

During the promotional tour for his second film as director, The Death Of Stalin, Armando Iannucci admitted that he was trying to get a new screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' David Copperfield off the ground. The flick is being penned by Armando Iannucci, who had earlier created Veep. Iannucci revealed that he and Simon Blackwell, who co-wrote his Oscar-nominated political satire In the Loop, had begun work on a script for the film a year ago (17).

According to reports, the project will offer a contemporary take on the title character of Dickens as he navigates a messy world to find his mysterious place within it.

Iannucci and Kevin Loader are producing the pic, while FilmNation handles worldwide sales and will co-rep US with UTA Independent Film Group. Patel has played leading roles in several movies, the latest being Lion, for which he earned an Oscar nomination.

David Copperfield, first published as a serial in 1849, was Dickens' eighth novel, and the novelist once named it as his favourite. BBC has also released a number of TV series based on the classic previously.
