Veep / The Thick of It creator Armando Iannucci is continuing to bring his unique talents to the big screen with his latest feature, The Personal History of David Copperfield. This time around he is stepping away from political satire and adapting a classic Charles Dickens novel, which feels like a bit of a departure for him although it is clearly still a comedy. Reviews coming out of TIFF have been very positive with plenty of praise for the ensemble cast that includes Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw. Fox Searchlight will release the film in North America, although a release date has yet to be set. The Personal History of David Copperfield hits theatres in the U.K. on Jan. 10th; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
