Black Mirror Creator Is Making A Mockumentary About 2020 For Netflix

Charlie Brooker is working on a new film for Netflix, according to star Hugh Grant.


Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror is one of Netflix's big sci-fi shows, but season six is probably a while away yet. Back in May, Brooker said that he was working on other things, but wouldn't give more details--and now, one of the actors involved in a project he's working on has spilled the beans.

In an interview with Vulture, Hugh Grant has revealed that he's filming something for Brooker's next project, a mockumentary about 2020. Grant says that he'll be playing "a historian who’s being interviewed about the year," which makes it sound like the film will be set in the future, looking back on the year.

"I’m pretty repellent, actually," Grant continued. "And you'll like my wig."

No further details about the film are revealed. Hugh Grant's latest series, The Undoing on HBO, has just finished airing.

The most recent season of Black Mirror had an episode focused on an online VR fighting game, called Striking Vipers. Before that, the interactive Black Mirror film Bandersnatch was released, which ultimately resulted in a recently-settled lawsuit.
