James McAvoy pulls out of Julian Assange film
Scottish actor James McAvoy has pulled out of the Julian Assange film.
The 33-year-old had been offered the role of the WikiLeaks founder’s right-hand man Daniel Domscheit-Berg, but due to scheduling conflicts with X-Men sequel Days Of Future Past, he will not be taking part.
Spanish-born German actor Daniel Bruhl has now taken his place, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Benedict Cumberbatch is set to portray Julian, and the film will be directed by Bill Condon.
The movie is based on Domscheit-Berg’s ‘Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange At The World’s Most Dangerous Website’ book and David Leigh and Luke Harding’s ‘WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War On Secrecy’.
