Wes Anderson will direct Benedict Cumberbatch in Roald Dahl’s The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar

Wes Anderson is going to direct another film based on a story by Roald Dahl. His last was 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. This new one is an adaptation of The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Benedict Cumberbatch will play the titular character for the Netflix production. He will be joined by Dev Patel, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Kingsley.

If you could see with your eyes closed…Would you use your power for good or for personal gain? The life story of The Man Who Could See Without His Eyes, inspires Henry Sugar with a wonderful idea. Such an amazing ability could allow Henry to cheat at cards! Henry undertakes years of training to achieve this remarkable feat and promptly uses his new power to win, and win big, but he soon discovers that more than his eyes have been changed by his studies…

Baz Bamigboye shared the news.

It is a great little story and I can see Anderson making a great movie from it.

The film is due to begin production in London soon.

Anderson recently wrapped on Asteroid City a romantic comedy-drama starring Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Rupert Friend, Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Hope Davis, Jeffrey Wright, Liev Schreiber, Tony Revolori, Jeff Goldblum, Sophia Lillis, Steve Park, Maya Hawke, Fisher Stevens, Jake Ryan, Ethan Josh Lee and Matt Dillon.
