Dev Joins “David Copperfield”

Variety is reporting that Dev is set to star in “David Copperfield“.

Dev Patel is set to play David Copperfield in FilmNation’s new retelling of Charles Dickens’ “The Personal History of David Copperfield,” which will be directed and written by “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci.
