Moving from the tense world of modern American politics, to the high-stakes political minefield of World War II, House of Cards star Kevin Spacey has signed on to play legendary English Prime Minister Winston Churchill, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, Captain of the Gate, follows Churchill's rise to power during World War II, and his struggle to lead England against Adolf Hitler's German forces. The screenplay was written by Ben Kaplan, whose previous work includes a Ronald Regan biopic made by the History Channel.
The film's producers are currently looking for a director.
