Shoot dates have been confirmed for Darkest Hour, Working Title”s feature starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill.

Filming will take place in London and Yorkshire, with the exact shoot dates listed for subscribers on Production Intelligence along with key hires including the location manager, line producer, production designer, production manager and production co-ordinator.

We first listed the project back in February, and confirmed Joe Wright as being at the helm to direct around a month later.

Wright will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), which centres on a turbulent 12-month period in Churchill”s tenure – the ‘darkest hour” of the title – following the fall of France in June 1940.

Reportedly joining Oldman are John Hurt as Neville Chamberlain, Lily James as Churchill”s secretary and Kristin Scott Thomas as his wife Clementine.
