Cox previously said of the role: "I am looking forward to bringing this iconic but complex figure to life- it’s the role of a lifetime for me and I’m so pleased to be taking this journey with both Jonathan and our great cast."
Made by Salon Pictures, the film sees the "wartime leader clash with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his inner-demons in order to navigate the Allies to victory."
It is being directed by Jonathan Teplitzky and has been written by British historian and author Alex von Tunzelmann in her feature debut,
