The scandal that arose around powerful media mogul, political manipulator and Fox News boss Roger Ailes is already being chronicled on screen via the Russell Crowe-starring series The Loudest Voice. Now comes the cinematic take, Bombshell, which features Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie leading the cast, and John Lithgow as Ailes. Check out the first teaser...

Jay Roach, who has usually been found documenting real-life scandals and political maneuvers for HBO, teamed up with The Big Short writer Charles Randolph for this one. IT'll follow Ailes' rise and fall. He ran Fox News and helped launch the careers of Megyn Kelly (Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Kidman), and Sean Hannity (Spencer Garrett) with his powerful channel. He also was also a prominent figure in Republican circles who helped elect presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush. He was forced to resign in 2016 due to sexual harassment allegations, with Carlson and Kelly’s the most high-profile, and which contributed to his exit from the network.

Alice Eve, Kate McKinnon, Rob Delaney, Allison Janney and Stephen Root are also featured in the cast, and Bombshell lands in the US on 20 December but has yet to confirm a solid UK release. We'd expect it early next year.
