World-famous actor Benedict Cumberbatch will appear before the audience with his new project. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Dr. Benedict Cumberbatch, who climbed to the top of his career with the characters of Strange and Sherlock Holmes, will star in the series 'How to Stop Time', based on Matt Haig's novel of the same name.
The cast of the project, which will be produced by Studiocanal, includes the writer D. C. Moore, who will adapt the book to the series, and Tomas Alfredson.
According to the news on T24.com, the series will show the struggle of the history teacher and his dark team, who have been alive for 500 years, to cope with the loss.
The series, in which Cumberbatch will play the man who has lived for more than 500 years, tells the story of a history teacher from the 1500s, who has a slow aging disease called anageria, although he appears to be in his 40s. The History teacher, who formed a dark group by meeting with other patients like himself, falls in love with an ordinary woman, even though he swore that he would never do it. At this point, things will come to an uncontrollable point.
There were also statements about the series from Studiocanal CEO Anna Marsh and Cumberbatch. “You can imagine Benedict being the perfect name for the role in a show with many homely touching themes,” Marsh said.
