“Game of Thrones” star Carice van Houten has joined Bill Condon’s untitled Wikileaks movie at DreamWorks.
Josh Singer scripted the project about Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who launched the whistleblowing site in 2006 and began antagonizing world governments by leaking embarrassing diplomatic cables and other state secrets.
Van Houten will play Birgitta Jonsdottir, an Icelandic journalist who becomes the default spokesperson for Assange. She is now a member of Iceland’s parliament.
Daniel Bruhl and Alicia Vikander also star. Steve Golin, Michael Sugar and Bard Dorros are producing.
