London - US actor Kevin Spacey is to play legendary British leader Winston Churchill in a new movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.

The report said that Spacey, 54, was attached to star in Captain of the Gate, which focuses on the rise to power of the great wartime leader, who stood almost alone in his early insistence on the threat posed by Hitler.

There was no word on who will direct the film. - Sapa-dpa
