Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop, The Death of Stalin) "is bulking up the cast" for his upcoming film, The Personal History of David Copperfield, with the addition of Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, The Thick of It), the Hollywood Reporter wrote.

Capaldi, who joins a cast that includes Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie and Ben Wishaw, will play Mr. Micawber "in the fresh take on Charles Dickens' autobiographical masterpiece," THR noted. Written by Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, the project begins production in June in the U.K.
