David Slade will reportedly be directing the "Black Mirror" movie.
Fans of Black Mirror couldn't have been any more excited when news of a potential movie broke a few weeks ago. Season 5 of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series is extremely anticipated and any news regarding it is bound to cause a stir. Last week, it was reported that a film would soon be released as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which one hawk-eyed fan noticed on Netflix before the listing was removed. Charlie Brooker's anthology series appears to be making its return on December 28 as Bandersnatch is expected to go live. Before then, the plot details and cast have been leaked online.
It was previously rumored that the film would run an interactive experience allowing viewers to use their remote controls to see how the story plays out. According to NME, that will still be happening with Bandersnatch as it will be a "follow-your-own-adventure" formula. Some cast information was also revealed by the Korean Media Rating Board as Dunkirk actor Fionn Whitehead will reportedly be taking the lead role. David Slade, who previously directed "Metalhead" from last season, is reported to be at the helm of the movie. NME have done the honors of translating the synopsis from Korean to English, which reads, "A young programmer makes a fantasy novel into a game. Soon, reality and virtual world are mixed and start to create confusion." While a little jumbled, it definitely sounds like a Black Mirror episode.
Bandersnatch is currently expected to arrive on December 28. Are you keeping an eye out for it?
