It appears February 13, 2020, is the day of Dev Patel. Hours after A24 dropped the trailer for the upcoming epic The Green Knight starring the Slumdog Millionaire actor, Searchlight Pictures released another film featuring Patel. Directed by Veep creator Armando Iannucci, The Personal History of David Copperfield brings the Charles Dickens classic back to life with a comedic spin. The film will also star Tilda Swinton and Hugh Laurie, and is scheduled for release on May 8, 2020.
In his The Old Man & the Gun follow-up, Director David Lowery is adapting a tale straight from the knights of the round table. The 14th-century legend follows King Arthur's nephew, Sir Gawain as he sets out on a quest to take on the Green Knight. Starring Dev Patel, The Green Knight is slated for release on May 29, 2020.
