The year 2020 is a perfect inspiration for a science fiction film — of course, by Charlie Brooker.
In a report published on Deadline, The “Black Mirror” creator is supposedly creating a “mockumentary” for Netflix. Hugh Grant had apparently let slip the news while talking about “The Undoing” with New York magazine. Netflix isn’t revealing any details, but the British actor said that he’s playing a “repellent” historian with a wig in the show.
Back in May, Brooker had said that he wasn’t working on a sixth season for hit show “Black Mirror.” He said he was unsure if people could “stomach” another dystopian story at the moment, what with the world at standstill as it faces the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
However, he shared that he has been “busy doing things,” such as comical scripts.
“Black Mirror” is Brooker’s Emmy-winning series that portrays multiple facets of society falling apart that premiered on Netflix. The said show has garnered millions of followers around the globe.
Its fifth season was released in June 2019, consisting of three episodes starring Anthony Mackie and Miley Cyrus, among others.
