OK, Armando Iannucci’s take on Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield with Dev Patel starring might be (and we now this is a hot, hot take here) one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the books.
In case you forgot, Iannucci is the mastermind behind some of the best comedy of the 21st century including In The Loop, Thick of It, Death of Stalin, and Veep. Ianucci’s Personal History of David Copperfield ought to be one nice thing to look forward to (in what will very likely be a more stressful year than 2019).
Really, Armando Iannucci could make a great movie about either David Copperfield.
That being said, he’s not doing a movie about the magician that’s currently dealing with sexual assault allegations.
We’re very curious to see what Iannucci does with the celebrated Charles Dickens character in this latest project entitled “The Personal History of David Copperfield”. It’ll be a modern take on the Copperfield story, so maybe it’ll have much more profanity laced jokes than in the book?
